Don’t Take Anything Personally

Of course you won’t!  Never. Me? Nope. Well, maybe… sometimes.


There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally. You will only need to trust yourself to make responsible choices. You are never responsible for the actions of others; you are only responsible for you. When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the careless comments or actions of others.
~ Don Miguel Ruiz

Okay. I admit. I tend to take things personally. More than sometimes. To a fault.
