When every weird look, snide remark, or unfriendly punctuation in a text can cause us to go into a tailspin - it's easy to see that we may take things a little too personally.

Because we are constantly taking in more information than others, we tend to notice every mood change or every slight difference in a person's communication which causes us to feel as if things are our fault or direct at us.

But ready for some ground breaking news?!

9 times out of 10, another person's behavior or mood is not your fault or even your responsibility (this is just my own opinion).

I know you don't want to take things personally but it's just the way our brains are wired. But it's time to break free of this self-imposed prison and find joy and happiness in not taking things personally.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • The number one secret to stop taking things personal.
  • Tools to use in daily life when you notice you're taking things personally.
  • About how I broke free of this cycle.
