Great Quote

Posted: 10/10/2007 in Quotes, Thoughts
This Quote is SO TRUE! I remember years ago when one of apostles spoke about how people don’t make us made but that we let them make us mad. I have learned over the years that this is actually true. It is hard to swallow but how true it is. Here another apostle is saying it!!!

Being Offended Is a Choice We Make
---------------------------------------------------

"Certainly clumsy, embarrassing, unprincipled, and
mean spirited things do occur in our interactions with
other people that would allow us to take offense.
However, it ultimately is impossible for another
person
to offend you or to offend me. Indeed, believing that
another person offended us is fundamentally false. To
be offended is a choice we make; it is not a condition
inflicted or imposed upon us by someone or something
else."

Topics: choices, attitude, relationships, offense

(David A. Bednar, "And Nothing Shall Offend Them,"
Ensign, Nov. 2006,
90)
