Todays reminder to self is the second agreement from the book “the fifty agreement” by Don Miguel Ruiz. One of my favorite books.
2- DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
If you make a habit of not taking anything personally, you no longer need to place your trust in what others say or do. Ruiz suggests that we are not responsible for the actions of others; rather, we are only responsible for our own actions and decisions. If we can strengthen our ability to not take things personally, we can no longer be hurt by words or actions of others.
“Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.”
