I’ve written this to me and my overactive mind; however, if it’s resonating, keep reading!
Why do we take everything so personally?
- She didn’t text me back. Irrational thought: I must have upset her?Rational thought: She’s probably just busy and forgot to reply. She’ll get round to it.
- They didn’t like my pic on my socials. Irrational thought: They’ve unfollowed me because they don’t like my content **quickly checks page to see if they’ve actually unfollowed me** Rational thought: It probs didn’t show up on their feed…let’s face it, the insta algorithm is so draining. They love you anyway.
- He seemed off when I spoke with him? Irrational thought: He’s definitely gone off me. I thought we were going really well. He doesn’t want to be with me anymore. Rational thought: He’s had a shit day at work and got a lot on his mind.
The reaction of another person is never ever about you. It’s about them. Even if you disagree and they flip out on you, don’t take it personally. It’s the relationship they have with their inner being rather than at you. Does that make sense?
Move on. People are busy and as harsh as this sounds, you’re probably the last person on their mind. Stop wasting your energy focusing on another person and focus on what you can control: your goals, all the beautiful things you have in your life, your friends, your family, the sunshine, the list goes on.
