Gentle

“Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” – Miguel Angel Ruiz

We too easily let others get to us, to our core, with a simple dig, heavy sigh, thoughtless comment. Let others own what’s theirs to own. Focus on what you own – your actions, responses and attitude. Let positive words, thoughts and actions take hold and replace those old ones that are holding you down and back. Despite what others say or do, be and show gentleness. Negativity may be loud. But a positive spirit is stronger and will endure long after it’s given away.

  3. This is so true. My biggest weakness is allowing the thoughts and words of others affect my mood and even worse how I feel about myself. I have to watch it all the time. You are right, positive spirit is stronger than negativity.

    • I agree. We really have to watch what we take in and what we give out.

    Thank you for reinforcing what I know but don’t practice. I often feel like a mirror reflecting other people’s moods and ignoring my own.
    Today is the first of many where I’ll tune into ‘me’ and not ‘them’. 🙂
