Taking it personal.

It seems that taking everything personal has helped me to create obstacles in several areas of my life.

A few weeks ago, I had a talk about it with one of my best friends and she advised me to NOT take everything personal. She was very wise about it and helped me notice a very practical example of why not everything that happens is to hurt me.

Since then, I try to breathe longer and just keep going with what am I doing. I’m not gonna lie, it has been hard because I’m used to take it personal and feel offended, but I’m working on it.

A few days ago, I had a situation where my head told me to feel bad but my heart told me to keep working hard and at the end, absolutely nothing that tried to hurt me was real, it was my head trying to make things up to hurt me.

I told my friend what happened and she reminded me: you are useful and you matter, don’t let your head tell you otherwise! ❤

When I tell you I’m really blessed to have a friend like her, I mean it!

After that talk, I noticed something. Taking it personal has helped me to ruin a lot of good things in the past: friendships, group works, relationships, businesses and maybe more.

And now that I’m in a different scenario where I’m really working on NOT taking it personal, I’ve noticed that several areas in my life are just flowing. I’m laughing more with my friends, I’m studying better, I’m having a great relationship, I’m still working hard and trying to focus even more.

I was blessed the day God put Titi in my life and I thank God I was humble enough to listen carefully to what she had to say to help me improve. I hope everyone had a good, honest and caring friend like her. ❤
