We make agreements with ourselves that create limitation and unhappiness in our lives. This is part three of my blog posts about The four agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz. Stop thinking everything is about you. It’s not.
Don’t take anything personally.
Someone else’s reality, opinion, or feeling about you, is not for you to take personally. You can avoid much self afflicted suffering by accepting their reality (even if they can’t), you can use the opinion to help guide you if you choose, and if you don’t like how someone feels about you, don’t take it personal. Simply accept it. It’s about them, and their reality, opinions and feelings. If you always do your best and don’t make assumptions, it’s ok, they’ll get over it, so should you. Stay tuned for the fourth agreement in my next post.
