Don’t Take Anything Personally


2 min read

Have you ever had that moment where you thought someone was upset about something you did ? Did this very thing happened not to be about you but about something else ?

I know I did ! And not just once.

We have a tendency to think that we did something wrong.

Instead of thinking that why don’t we just try and ask the persons what they think ? They might just tell us that what they said wasn’t about us at all but about something they experienced earlier with someone else.

That might save you a lot of trouble.

I learnt that teaching from the book The Four Agreement by Don Miguel Ruiz.

He explains that if we take things personally, we necessarily take everything into account. We take into our being the trash of others, that becomes our own once we agreed to it.

If we don’t take anything personally, we become immune to the poisoned words of others.

What others think about me do not concern me but them.

And we don’t waste our time worrying about others.

This book really changed the way I used to see things and I really advise you to read it.

It teaches us about 4 guidelines we must all follow in our everyday life.

  • Be impeccable with your words
  • Don’t take anything personally
  • Don’t make assumptions
  • Always do your best

4 guidelines that seem difficult when you didn’t read the book but that are really easy when you read it and when you understood what they mean. So easy that there also is the same book available for children. As we saw in the article On Being Childlike, we must actually follow and listen to the children.

It is really well and easy said and I think most of us should take time to read that 120 page book! I read it in 3 days.

Your life is the manifestation of your dream, it’s a work of art.

Don Miguel Ruiz

That it all for today, I hope you enjoyed reading this and that it spoke to you. Best thing would be that it gave a a little idea of what The Four Agreements are about and pushed you to read it.

Be sure to stay tuned so you don’t miss the next articles, as said in the last one we will dive deeper into the mind-body connection by developing the Ayurveda subject and many more at the same time.

In the meantime, don’t forget to take care of yourself, you are the only one that exactly know how.
