Personal importance, or taking things personally, is the maximum expression of selfishness, because we make the assumption that everything is about “me”… All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world that the one we live in.
If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person does not walk away from you, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find you don’t need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.
Write and post somewhere you will see it: Be free. Don’t take anything personally.
