What to say to someone who is EASILY OFFENDED

Have you ever met anyone who is offended by every little thing? Being around someone who is easily offended is beyond annoying and can take the joy out of any social situation. It feels like you are dealing with someone with the emotional age of a toddler who can throw a tantrum at any moment.

People who are easily offended blame other people for their emotions instead of taking responsibility for how they feel. They always play the victim card. If you live in a constant loop trying to catch other people doing something wrong, you are in a pretty miserable state of mind.
