Some of the stress and anxiety we feel may come from taking things too personally. Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom says:

“There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.”

Put this message somewhere you will see it on a consistent basis; post it on your fridge, tape it to the dash of your car, or put it under the clear plastic section in your wallet so you can see it whenever you open your wallet. Do a Google search for this statement and save it and make it your computer screensaver or wallpaper on your smart phone…

Believe me, the more you practice not taking what others say and do personally, the easier it will become to not let what others do and say affect you personally. And even if another person actually takes a personal shot at you, who cares? One person’s opinion of you is not a consensus.

So don’t stress it and just let it go!!!
