We offend other people to defend ourselves when we loose our patience.
It's easy to offend someone else; it is more difficult to accept an offence.
Of course, our reaction dependsmuch on he who offended us.
Personally, I I feel offended when someone says something that is not true about me.
If I understand that who he offends me is right, I try not to get angry and to do something to change.
To me it is easier to offend my parents, for example, because I know that they will forgive me.
Generally I don't like to offend people because I'm afraid of their reaction.
I think that offending other people is a way to hide our weaknesses and so, in my opinion, it is unfair .
We don't have the right to judge the others, so we shouldn't offend anyone.
