Think about this saying pertaining to your own life. Everything you do in your life, truly is because of and for you, and not anyone else. If you begin to understand this in its truest sense, you will stop being hurt or upset over the action of others.
All of the broken or damaged relationships, essentially have to do with feelings getting hurt by something the other person said or did to them. In actuality, the thing that was said or done, in most cases, is the other person being true to themselves, and you took it personally.
This was such a difficult lesson for me personally. I'm a person that would internalize everything and be hurt often by the action or words of others. I would often put the needs of others before my own and then take it personally when those I cared about didn't do the same in return. This was me being truly upset with myself for truly not taking care of me the way I should. Because you are the only one responsible for your happiness.
Once I realized that we are all on our own separate journey in this life, which is what makes different personalities, opinions, and actions, this quote hit me hard! In looking inward, I was able to realized that not only is what others do not personal, but that I'm not being true to me. And at the end of the day, true acceptance is about yourself, no one else. You truly will never please everyone, and we weren't meant to. We are however, meant to live a happy, healthy, and abundant life! And that starts with you!
Imagine what a different world we could live in if, as a whole, we didn't take it personally. Imagine a world we could live in if we all had enough respect for ourselves and others to just be true to ourselves and understood that others are doing the same. Imagine all of the pain and hate in the world dissipating if we all just practiced this one thing, daily. OK, this definitely wouldn't cure all of the hate and pain in the world, but it's a start, don't you think?
