"The Four Agreements" is one of my favorite books. The way it boils down a ton of crap into very simple terms is amazing. You know that Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of the book, knows his shit because he can take very complex ideas and processes and explain it in a very cool story and in very simple terms. One of my favorite agreements of the four is the idea of not taking things personal. We go through our world and come in contact with so many people, different types of people, that all have different things going on in their life, and all have different ways of dealing with things. Because of this, you will have people say things or do things to you that seem pretty F-ed up. Sure you can get really mad at them and get back at them to get even. It might make you feel better to retaliate but what do you really get from it? Nothing. Whatever the person said or did to you has more to do with them than it does to do with you. If its mean or rude or nasty, its just them dealing with their own shit and venting it out to the world. Is it right? Of course not. You don't get "get out of jail free" cards because you are having a bad day where you can say and do whatever you want. But for those that are "affected" by it, they need to NOT take it personal. Don't waste time being mad or pissed about it. Just let them have their bad day and move on until they are back to being normal to you. Now if its someone you don't know, then chalk it up to a person having a shitty day and let it go. We all have them. But don't take it personal or to heart. It's just dumb words or actions from a person that is having an issue. The second you don't take things personal, then you get to keep all your power. If they push your buttons with the comment and you take it personal, then you lose and you give them ALL the power. Keep your power! Its yours and it priceless!! :)
