The Second Agreement: Don’t Take Anything Personally

The Second Agreement: Don’t Take Anything Personally

“Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves.”

When you take the negative things others say about you personally, you get trapped in your own personal importance because you are operating under the selfish assumption that everything is about you. You start to get depressed and unhappy because you start to believe those negative things about yourself.

Once you stop taking things personally, you will be much happier.
