Agreement #2 Don’t Take Anything Personal
The older I’ve gotten and the more I’ve read and searched for wisdom and peace, this agreement is a message that seems to be present in most of those searches.
We all make mistakes, thats life. We must take accountability for those mistakes though or we’ll continue to make the same mistakes over and over…
I realized when God has a lesson he wants you to learn he’ll keep putting you in similar situations until you achieve the growth he sees in you. For example, if you pray to God for a lesser temper, he’d put you in situations that would tempt your anger to come out to see how you’ll react. It wouldn’t be to where one day you wake up and you no longer have a temper, this isn’t a fairytale.
Since life is hard we tend to make decisions that look out for our own best interest. I don’t personally think anything is fully wrong with that, but I do think we should always take into account who is affected by our decisions.
We must not take anything personal that happens to us. I found out that most things people do or even say to you is a reflection of how they feel about themselves. They are literally speaking to themselves through you.
We all have dreams of how we view the world, this is what your thoughts and mind is. Some people we will meet and since we share similar dreams we communicate more than with people who our dream world seems to never correlate with. With this in mind someone whose dream is different than yours has different “rules” they live life by.
Not everyone has been forced to learn certain lessons that you have been forced to learn in your life, want to know why? They aren’t you. Your life was constructed perfectly for you, I know you’ve heard the saying about everyone not being raised the same.
With all that information I just told you, now we can understand why we can’t take anything personal. We all are trying to make the best decisions for ourselves even if we may be running away from the things we should face. We all realize things at different times of life, it’s on us to charge that to people heads not their hearts.
