You offend me and I don’t let you go.
I offend you and it’s the first thing you do.
Am I just a sap?
Or am I the more tolerant of the two?
Why on earth should I not let people know when I am offended?
Never mind, I know, it is because in letting you know, I will offend you, and you will write me out of your life.
Perhaps it is time I don’t care so much about hanging on to friends who are just looking for an excuse to cut me out of their lives.
Perhaps I should go looking for less offensive friends, or at least friends who, while they might call me on it, will at least acknowledge I have a right to my feelings and opinions just as they do.
Why am I expected to tolerate theirs, but they refuse to tolerate mine?
Am I alone?
