Don't take it personally, take 252
Today’s blog is inspired by “the way of life mode” of Gestalt therapist Fritz Perls who came up with the following verse:
"I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped."
If you take every insult or rude remark personally, you will be offended for the rest of your life. One of the most freeing things we can learn in life is that we don’t have to agree with everyone. And everyone doesn’t need to agree with us.
And that’s okay.
