Whenever you feel low, just take a brief time each day to read uplifting words that resonate with how you feel, the inspiring quotes that will give you a mental, emotional, and spiritual lift. Although we can't always control what happens to us in life, we can choose to find a different way of looking at things
If you can stop taking things personally, you will be happier. I am pretty sure that everyone knows about this; however, it
is easier said than done.
I have never thought carefully about it until one day when I
found myself being frustrated with other people’s actions. Let me share my
experience with you.
I went to the store; as I walked into the front door, the lady pushed a shopping cart toward me because the exit and the entrance were the
same. So I stopped to let her out. And while I was stepping back, I didn’t know
that there was another lady behind me. I accidentally stepped on her foot; I said
sorry to her but seemed like she didn’t accept my apology. I could tell from her
attitude because she gave me a dirty look. Her behavior bothered me, and I felt
like my mood was ruined.
This is just one example of situations in my routine life.
As we are human beings, we can’t avoid facing unpleasant circumstances. I have
realized that I can’t control people’s behaviors, attitudes, and unpredicted incidents.
If I still let myself get frustrated, I would never be happy
because there will always be an unpleasant incident. When things frustrate me, I
need to change my attitude and stop taking things personally. What others say
or do is not about me; it’s about them. Now I have found myself being happier since
that day, I have changed my attitude.
I hope you can do it as I did and you will be happier.
Stop taking things personally!
