Try not to take offense, it wastes your energy to spend it being offended. It also means that you allowed it to control you. It happens, but its quite soothing just to smile and go on.
“For an instant I think I saw. I saw the loneliness of man as a gigantic wave which had been frozen in front of me, held back by the invisible wall of a metaphor.”
― Carlos Castaneda, Journey to Ixtlan
