Oh, yeah, don’t act like you are the exception because, in today’s video, I am going to share 6 signs that you almost definitely take things personally. Why does this matter?
Well, if your happiness doesn’t matter then this probably won’t be a big deal to you but since I know happiness does matter to us… I mean… I did write a book about this very thing…
This subject is going to come handy because there are certain behaviors keeping us too attached to things that don’t serve us and we don’t even realize what these behaviors are. One of the signs I talk about in today’s video is about guilt. How many times have you felt guilty for something you had no control over? My guess would be a lot right?
Hell… I even have friends who have felt guilty when I, carelessly, stubbed my toe on a chair. They had nothing to do with that chair yet still felt responsible. Now, to most of us, we’d think, “she just cares.” But, how much is it caring and how much of it is actually making yourself more significant than you need to? #TRUTHBOMB #SorryNOTSorry! I actually did a video about guilt in the past that I think would be a perfect visit after today’s lesson. But guilt is just one of the behaviors we exhibit that makes everything personal. And when everything is personal, our self-worth is at stake.
Oh yes, taking things personally makes everything about us and when that happens, how we feel about ourselves is completely dependent on how others perceive us. I find this to be a bigger problem for most of my ladies because we think for a community, so naturally, we care more about how others feel, but again, how much of this is actually caring, and how much is it seeking approval, gratification or acknowledgment for what should be felt within?
That is the question I leave you with my dear and I want to see a discussion in the COMMENT section below!
Have a beautiful Thursday my darling!
