should you offend people?

Posted by sunnydays on July 3, 2008, at 19:49:44

So, I would normally address this to my T, but he is on vacation, so I will ask you guys.

I am taking a class now that is really challenging a lot of my assumptions and beliefs (and is meant to), and I am really kind of scared. I get into thinking that maybe because I have these beliefs to be challenged in the first place, maybe I don't belong in this program, etc. But I keep trying to tell myself that the fact I'm willing to think about my beliefs and be flexible means of course I should be there.

My question is: when is it ok to offend people? My class was basically saying when there is a problem you believe in strongly, then it's ok and sometimes people need to be offended. That idea scares me, as I was strongly brought up to never offend anyone and always 'be nice'.

I really really really want to talk to my T, but he's not here. :( I miss him a lot. Today would have been the day I should have seen him. I am just so lost and confused and needy.
