Living in the world as a sensitive emphatic human being use to be a lot more difficult for me. With a big heart full of love, and pure raw emotion, I found it hard to go a day without getting offended or hurt by something someone would say or do.

As my journey to self-love has grown and strengthened, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life, I noticed I stopped taking things personal. Peoples comments, lies, reactions and even endings, be it friendships, relationships, or paths in life I wanted to take.

It was a good opportunity for me to practice self-love but also send love to the people mistreating me. They were really just mistreating themselves and showing me where else I could set healthy boundaries because we teach people how to treat us.

Life got so much easier the more I learned and lived this belief. Everyone reflects where they currently are within themselves.

Here are 5 ways to not take things personal

1 ~ Understand that how someone feels is them just expressing where they are within themselves, it has nothing to do with you.

2 ~ Use a comment or an action that triggers you as an opportunity to cultivate more self-love for your wounds that might still need healing and send that person a "Thank You" for bringing that to light.

3 ~ Most times people are not trying to lie to you and be hurtful, they are just lying to themselves because they feel they cannot be authentically who they are.

4 ~ If someone is being hurtful, it is because they are hurting. Sending them love instead of wanting to react will help them heal and have the negativity bounce off your inner light.

5 ~ Accept everything as it is. Trust that the Universe is falling together for you, even if it feels like it is falling apart. It is always leading you to that right path, person and situation that is needed for your growth.

With Love,

Melissa
