It's Not About YOU, Silly!

It is hard to be in a position to see people feeling hurt and vulnerable, to sometimes be the cause of it, even indirectly, and not be able to resolve the issues.  It is tough to know that people question your integrity, your fairness, your desire to do right by everyone. It is challenging to let people have their feelings and opinions and not take on that energy directed at you but not AT YOU.  It is hard not to take it personally.

It is not personal. When you stand between danger and the nearest escape route, you are going to get run over. That's a fact. And it doesn't matter who you are or how good your relationships seem to be.  It's not about you, silly.

Today, I had a hard time remembering that.  Tomorrow is Friday and that is a very, very good thing.

  1. Yes, indeed. It's not you. It's the situation.

    Deep down you are a person of incredibly integrity. Those that know you know that.

    It's not you. And it will be okay.
