Some people live life taking everything so literally and personally, and I can't help but feel sad for those people. It must be painful to walk on a path of broken glass all day long--and why would you when there's a perfectly nice sidewalk paved alongside it?
There's no need to take daggers from words that aren't meant to hurt you! You just have to install the right filters in your ears. If you're going to twist people's words, at least twist them into rainbows instead of lightning bolts. Understand how impossible it would be for someone to word all of their phrases so specifically inclusive of every one of seven-point-zero-five billion individuals' beliefs. Of course, people should be careful what they're saying or doing--but sometimes you need to protect yourself. Hear what you want to hear. Besides, a lot of things are not meant to be insulting, but we still feel them like sticks and stones thrown at our heads, and then we might fire back. Meanwhile, all of that energy we waste feeling hurt and firing back could be used trying to politely explain why our feelings could be hurt by certain statements or actions, and potentially even changing someone's point of view in the process.
Your heart does not have to go through half the trouble it does; you need to know that. Tune into a different radio station and let your ears listen to sweetness, for once. Step off the broken glass and give your feet a break. The world is meant to be up for interpretation, and it's a lot more tolerable--and enjoyable--that way.
