You must not become offended at others based on what they say to you. If you do, your ego is in charge. Not becoming offended at others will allow you to better tame your ego. Your ego always wants to be right.
So if someone tells you something or does something that you do not agree with, your ego may feel as if it is losing an argument, or a battle. This will trigger your ego to make you feel that you are right which will cause you to defend yourself and tell the other person that they are wrong.
When you defend yourself, you feel as if there is separation, as you may feel offended if what someone else tells you that you are wrong. One of the ways that you can better control your ego is to stop feeling offended when you are talking to others.
