“Don’t take anything personally.”
Yesterday my therapist reminded me to remember The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. She emphasized making sure I follow the second one: Don’t take anything personally.
When dealing with folks, they have their own patterns, behaviors, reasonings and thoughts, even trauma that they unpacking and processing. They things that folks say or do, or things that folks don’t say or don’t do, are a reflection of their own ideas & experiences, not necessarily a reflection of you, your worth, or things you have done/not done.
