Life is much more enjoyable the moment you realize that it is not about you. We are all the “main characters” in our own stories, so when someone is mean or unhelpful to you, that is all a part of their story, not yours. As a very sensitive child I longed to know how to not be so hurt by a world that can sometimes be inconsiderate and unforgiving. That sensitivity has given me many lessons in how to let go, and allow other people to live their own lives. Here Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements, helps explain how to not take things personally.
“The second of don Miguel Ruiz’s four agreements is about not taking everything personally. Watch as Oprah says she thinks it’s one of the hardest to follow, and get the advice don Miguel gives a customer service representative about dealing with challenging customers.”
PS- Stay tuned for the conclusion of “The Bed Bug Incident” tomorrow!
