I think it’s fair to say that we are currently living in a society and culture that absolutely LOVES to get offended by things, something things that don’t even relate to the directly. Here’s the thing, I love taking a moral high ground now and then, but when you start not being able to live a normal life because you are too busy holding grudges and fighting with people that aren’t even important to you, that’s when you might need to readdress some priorities. Here are some pointers on how to stop taking things personally.
1. Question Beliefs
If you find that you are taking offence to more things that you used to, or to things that are now just the common ways of life, then you might want to consider questioning what kind of beliefs you hold. Your interpretations of things are what causes you to take them personally, so why don’t you examine whether it actually might be you who needs to change instead of everything around you.
