    If a person is generous enough,he wont feel insulted when a person doesnt accept his/her generousity.

    If a person is egoist,he often feels offended/insulted when people dont go by his statements/purposes.

    So, all i think is it completely depends upon the attitude of a person about how he takes the internal/external environment according to his protocols.
