The Art of Not Being Offended

By Dr. Jodi Prinzivalli

----------------------------------------------------------

There is an ancient and well-kept secret to
happiness which the Great
Ones have known for centuries. They rarely talk
about it, but they use
it all the time, and it is fundamental to good
mental health. This
secret is called The Fine Art of Not Being Offended.

In other words, don't take it personally?

That is truly one of my biggest faults...I do take things way too personally and get offended easily. Still haven't figured out a way to get over myself at 47 yrs. of age.

There are a lot of people in these forums who attack you just because you don't like the PLACE where you live. This has happened to me too many times to count. I didn't get to see the article, as it has been removed, but I think a lot of people just need to chill the f**k out.

Hey, don't beat yourself up...At least you're conscious of where to do your work And, of course, we're all works in progress...IMHO, if I had fully learned this lesson by now, there'd be no reason for me to be here on Planet Earth experiencing Earth School

Just remember that everyone is under the law of their own consciousness. Really, IMHO, there's not such a thing as Truth...There's only each person's own personal truths. When others are directing negativity at you, it's just their own personal truth or reality...It's not about you So, that helps me to remember it's not about me. I can only control what I think or how I act
