You know that feeling? 😮😨😭😭😖😖
...when you find out someone did you wrong, like really wrong. Either betrayed you, or abandoned you, or straight up talked shit about you? It sux.
I had that happen to me recently by someone I totally trusted and it just changes you. Why would they do that? Don't they know how much I helped them? Don't they care?
They do. Here's the thing though...
It has nothing to do with you.
It never did.
This month in Yoga we are studying The 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.
This is ancient wisdom passed down for thousands of years, guidelines to being happy in a weirdo wonky world.
The 2nd Agreement tells us:
DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY.
As an Empath, this one is brutal. I FEEL everything, quite personally. ...AND though, when we look deeper, it makes perfect sense.
YOUR behavior is a product of many factors, like where you come from, how you were raised, the life experiences you've had, your preferences and triggers....and many more.... ALLLL determine how you behave. Same for other people. Their poor behavior is a product of their poor experience. Kinda sad really. I feel bad for them.
"when you are immune to the opinions and actions of others,
you won't be the victim of needless suffering." - Ruiz
The Cloud Meditation is an excellent way to practice not getting attached to people or things or even feelings. You can practice it with me here...
