    If you are asked with a half-meant joke, do you count that as an insult? Or just go with the flow?

    In a situation when somebody that is closed to you said something that you honestly don't wanna hear but you can see clearly that he/she is joking. Can you just go with the flow? Or end the conversation with a valid argument?

    My guess is it is very hard to go wrong by not voicing an opinion.   Let it ride.  Forget it.   What's being insulted anyway?  - your sense of self?   Your opinion of yourself?   

    That's all it is.  An opinion of ourselves is just that; an idea in our head about how the world should treat us.   You're going to spend a lot of time feeling hurt if you can't just do what those ducks do when another duck nearly bumps into them: wag your feathers quietly to yourself and swim away.   It really does make for smoother waters.
