Ladies and gentlemen. Do you feel like you are constantly climbing uphill during the day because you are always taking things personally. Do you feel like you want to sometimes just not speak to people because of how much they change your attitude about yourself and your life? Does it feel like other people are ruining your day? We must recognize when something is someone else's shit, someone else's baggage, and it's important for us to cultivate a practice around NOT picking it up.
Our objective here on this planet is not to be the nicest person around, it is to become whole again, to become sovereign, and to truly feel what it feels like to be YOU. In order to accomplish this, we cannot always be nice, and we cannot always please others. Stand up for yourself, and recognize when it is someone else's pain coming your way. And don't eat it.
