Do you take too personally what people say to you?
Do you feel offended by remarks, actions or behavior of other people?
Do you take every minor event too seriously, letting it limit or frighten you?
Did you know that quite often the offence is not real, and the so-called offender never intended to offend you at all?
Sometimes, you might have a wrong interpretation of someone’s words or behavior, due to lack of sufficient information or missing facts. Does this justify feeling offended? In such cases, the so-called offender might not know what’s the matter with you.
On other occasions, even if the other person did try to offend you intentionally, why accept, think, or dwell on what he or she said? It is absolutely foolish to participate in the game of hurt feelings.
I know, you might say it is easier said than done. When you feel hurt, insulted and angry, you cannot sweep these feelings under the carpet, but good and worthwhile things require some effort. Learning how to stop taking things too personally and too personally require that you invest effort and time.
