I still don't like to do things when I know there is a chance that I am going to upset someone.
So, as each and every person every day of your life lets you know what upsets them, you slowly but surely become a person who ultimately can't say or do much of anything because you've allowed yourself to be controlled by the desires of others.
You sure you want to live like that? Just curious.
BTW, I realize that your intention is no doubt to be nice and courteous, which isn't a bad thing at all; but, the phrasing of your statement pretty much says that you're willing to give into the emotional whims of everyone you run across in life...an exhausting, self-defeating approach for sure, as you come to eventually realize that you've been played for a complete fool by the "controllers/manipulators" of the world.
Well, hey, my middle name isn't "Cynical Beotch" for nuttin'! :-)
