Don’t Take Things Personally

One of my most difficult life lessons ❤️ Believe it or not the way people treat you is not always about you. Many project internal emotions, ones that they don’t understand themselves, onto the closest people to them.

For most my life I always felt there was something wrong with me when this would happen. What did I do to make someone treat me poorly or twist my intentions? If they truly understood me they would know I would never intentionally hurt anyone.

I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that it’s not always about me, and with this, my heart is softer. I address these situations with much more kindness, compassion and understanding. I am careful with the way I respond and walk away if it’s necessary for my own peace.

One of the Four Agreements: Don’t Take Things Personally. People struggle everyday with their own internal battles and you just don’t know where the fear, hurt or insecurity is coming from so don’t judge, just be kind 🧡🦋
