We don’t live in a shared reality, we each live in a reality of our own, and causing upset is often the price of trying to reach each other. It’s always easier to dismiss other people than to go through the awkward and time consuming process of understanding them. We have given ‘taking offense’ a social status it doesn’t deserve: it’s not much more than a way of avoiding difficult conversations.
