Do not! Let me repeat, Do Not, ever, ever take anything personal. As we live our lives, we are living our own story. We create our own characters and plot. Every person has their own story and that is the beauty of humanity. Each one of us comes from different cultures, backgrounds and ideals. When someone verbally attacks you or responds to you negatively, don’t take that personal because they are just reacting to a character they have created about you.
Live your life wholly as if you could care less about any negative thoughts, words or comments. Live it up! You are the creator of your own beautiful story, do not let a parasite suck you in!
