Words shouldn’t hurt us. As Christians we should be able to deflect or withstand insults. If we are living are lives correctly and have enough confidence in ourselves, people’s words should have little to no impact on us. When does this become arrogance. One extreme is always being bothered by others criticism and another is never listening to others because you think you’re right. Being bothered easily won’t help you grow or handle life. Another extreme can be never taking responsibility for how your words or actions hurt others. Underestimating and lead to victim blaming.
To an extent we are responsible for our words whether or not they are intended to offend.
Should we censor our selves because our opinion could hurt someone else?
Surely the truth does offend others. People should be open to hearing what others say without taking it personally.
Where is the fine line?
