Are People Too Sensitive?

Hi everyone, I’m Mike Staver, this is Mondays with Mike, a weekly video show where I answer questions from people just like you. I assume they’re like you, but they send in questions! Here’s this week’s question:

This question might get me kicked off the internet… you ready?

Mike, do you think that people are too sensitive and get their feelings hurt too easily?

YES I think so! Are you kidding me? People protest everything on the internet! “It hurt my feelings… it hurt my little self-esteem…” Did you get hit in the head by some flying object during a tornado?

People ARE too sensitive. About everything. When was the last time you got hurt being offended? Did you have to go to the hospital when you were offended? No. You didn’t. Did you have to get therapy because you were offended? Probably – if you’re some marshmallow soft non-mental toughness person. Maybe you did!

Yes, people get their feelings hurt too much! How’s it even possible? You can’t even say “Wow! You look nice today!” without somebody saying “That offended me!”

Yes, people are too sensitive!

Now I’m not saying you should go out and intentionally offend people. No, that’s exactly what I’m saying. Some days you should go out and intentionally offend people! Don’t be rude, don’t be sexist, don’t be racist, don’t be the things we all know we’re not supposed to be. Just try to be kind, try to be nice. Yeah, people are too sensitive. It makes me crazy. I don’t even get it.

You know, I’ll get emails about that! That I’m not being sensitive to people being too sensitive. You know what I’ll do with your email? DELETE. People are too sensitive.

Hope that’s helpful! I’m Mike Staver, see you next week. Take Care.

I’m Mike Staver, this is Mondays with Mike. Until next week, I’m gonna go offend some people. Take care.
