Don’t take it personally…

another one in those long line of phrases that are easy to give as advise but very difficult to execute. Well, its not easy not to take it personally. Let’s take a common situation when you are yelled at without having any idea what happened or why it happened. Now, it so happens that you have been making a conscious effort to do things as straight as possible. But, something goes wrong and the circumstances are truly beyond your control because even when retracing your steps, the situation and your actions refuse to add up and make sense.

What’s really important to understand at this point is that; much as it may seem like you are the one being attacked, you aren’t! I mean.. why would anybody want to do so? Generally, people have better things to do in life. ;)

Again, easier said but execution wise, what that really means is to take time off – If you are feeling really bad, I’ve found sleep to be a very good solution. Because inevitable, when we feel bad, we lose motivation to do anything and its much better we sleep it off and wake up fresh and raring to go. Now, I also feel it helps talking about it if it is really really bad but it is equally pointless if we go and talk to our mom/friend/boss and say we didn’t enjoy being screamed at. Duh! Of course they know and in all probability, they didn’t enjoy it either. What’s really good to understand is that the reason these guys choose to spend time with us is because they love seeing our cheerful side and that’s why they help us out when we are in trouble – so we can get back to being ourselves. So, lets just take a quick time out and get back in and start kicking all over again..

and that’s the bottom line.. coz stonecold said so!
