How to avoid taking things personally

articles, inspirational moments Add comments

Don’t take anything personally:
“Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their needs, their dreams. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” Don Miguel Ruiz - The four Agreements

How can we avoid taking things personally?

Remember everyone has a different point of view and sees the world through that point of view.  that point of view is coloured by their beliefs, opinions, thoughts, emotions, and fears.

How can we not take things personally in a world with so much personal interaction?
Even if someone insults you directly, it has nothing to do with you. The only way it can make you suffer is if somewhere, on some level, you believe this to be true about yourself. We as human beings project onto others. All relationships or projections are mirrors to our soul. The only person we cannot see in this world without a mirror is ourselves.

What do you do if you have toxic people in your life?
When toxic people show up in your life, look to see what you need to learn, do not judge yourself, make powerful observations, ask powerful questions and be willing to take actions. Why are you attracting this type of relationship into your life at this moment? You have a choice in every moment. Your happiness depends on no one but you.

How can I avoid taking things personally?

  • Respect and love yourself
  • See other people as they are, with a different point of view, listen to what lies behind their words, what do they need, how do they feel?
  • Refuse to eat emotional poison - toxic thoughts, resentment, guilt, shame, anger
  • Become immune to poison - toxic words may only stick to you if you accept them
  • Be immune to others opinions - what they think about you is none of your business
  • Release self judgment - be gentle, kind and compassionate with yourself
  • Relinquish self importance - give up your need to be right
  • Everyone lives in their own world, dream - including you
  • Everyone is coming from their own perspective
  • Your truth is personal to you
  • Transform your thoughts, transform your life
  • Embrace your freedom.

All transformation is just a shift in perspective.
