No One Offended

An unwise or unloving remark or act, taken into consciousness as offensive and left to grow, may assume mammoth proportions. Each of us will save himself many heartaches and perhaps countless squabbles when he learns to remain calm in the face of offenses. When one has learned to remain corklike—afloat when waves of intentional or unintentional unkindness try to pull him under — he will have truly mastered himself.

Isn't it true that for an offense to occur there must be both an offending and an offended person? Doesn't each one have the opportunity to answer for himself these questions: Will I be a party to offensive actions or remarks? Will I consent to being offended?
