Don’t Take It Personally

Sometimes people annoy you for the littlest things. And sometimes you’re the one who annoys the heck out of people.

One life lesson we all struggle with is to not take things personally. I struggle with it. 

You know that feeling. Someone only comes to you when he needs something from you. Or somebody made a comment and you think he’s talking about you.

Or the other person is late, which caused a delay on whatever you’re doing. Or you feel used because the other person doesn’t reciprocate. In your mind, you are doing good and you feel entitled that people should pay you back the same goodness.

It’s difficult not to feel offended and you just take things personally. Ganun talaga, eh. It takes a super big man (or woman) to just shrug it off and we all struggle with that.

At the end of the day, I do hope that we get to realize that 1) everything is not about us, and 2) what people think of us is none of our business. Preachy but that’s how it is.

Yun nga, most of the time, it’s difficult to realize. Mahirap talaga but I’m just saying that it is possible.
