Your words do not offend me!

With the onslaught of social media, people feel that that they can judge and pressure any and everyone into being afraid to say anything that might be considered different or something that someone may disagree with. Like the old saying, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me”. Being emotionally mature means that people can listen to someone else’s words and opinions and not be offended. If you don’t like or agree what someone says just don’t listen but shaming someone into not sharing their view isn’t going to make the world a better place
