Do Not Take Things Personally

Posted on: October 28, 2013

One of the wisest things anyone ever said was that we should not take anything personally. When we take things personally, we take on an unnecessary burden. There is no need to add extra weight to your concerns.

It is easy to become self-protective and throw up a wall of defense when we are criticized or feel attacked. It is a primal response.

However, when we take the time to stop and think, instead of just reacting, we are able to handle the situation more clearly and sufficiently. That is, when you stay centered, and stand your ground, other people cannot throw you out of balance.

Remember that everyone is living within their own experience, not in yours. They see and act from their own mental constructs, not from yours. Understanding this will help you with your own well-being.
