Taking it Personally

Taking it Personally

If you've read a few of my posts by now you know I'm all about letting go of things that don't serve me.  Letting go of things I couldn't control and learning that the only thing I could control was the way I reacted, took A LOT of practice.


In business, things fall through ALL the time. People let you down and change their plans without giving you a thought.  I used to take it really personally,  like they had some sort of personal vendetta against me and their actions were meant to directly make me feel let-down and deflated.  The reality of it was, my anxiety was talking and people are just out for themselves.  I don't at all mean that in a negative way, we're not meant to care deeply about EVERYONE - can you imagine how exhausting that would be? 

My whole point, of course, depends on the situation.  Sometimes when people let you down and there are other factors involved - feelings or finances for example, you're allowed to take it personally.  If someone is making a personal attack on you, you're allowed to take it personally.  I'm talking about the fleeting things that don't really matter, the ones that should be completely emotionless decisions that don't envoke an emotional reaction.


I guess because my business IS me, that's the reason I took things so seriously in the past.  It was also almost definitely anxiety and maybe my lack of experience and knowledge, maybe confidence.  Either way, being in business has afforded me infinite ways to progress personally and I'll always be grateful for that.

Mmmkay. Thanks for coming to my therapy session.
