If you are an empath or highly sensitive to energy, you probably take things personally. Your sensitivity, which is your gift, makes you feel emotions more intensely. If you carry pain or trauma from the past, you are easily triggered once your sensitivity starts rising.
You have probably heard of don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements , which helps us to recognize and break free from our limiting beliefs to regain our personal power. According to don Miguel Ruiz, the second agreement calls us not to take anything personally.
“Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally.… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world. Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds.”
You know the theory. But how do you put it into practice?
