Don’t take anything personal.
“Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”
-Don Miguel Ruiz
You have to understand people are only able to see things from their perspective, most of the time. It takes a self aware person to take themselves outside of themselves and look at things from someone else’s perspective. There will always be people whohave things to say about you and what you are doing. Do not worry about other’s opinions on you and what you do, as long as what you are doing is just and righteous.
Know yourself enough so when people try to attack your integrity or character you don’t have to defend yourself. You should already know who you are and what you stand for as a person. Most people will project their own shortcomings or insecurities on you as well so always be aware and avoid those kinds of people.
Remember don’t take things personally, stay calm, and know yourself.
