Inner Peace and Joy Tip # 42: Don't Take it Personal

Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 11, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply them to your life.

Your Inner Peace and life full of Joy is going to be based on how well you are able to respond to people. Let's face it, the world is full of people and you are going to have to deal with them in some manner or another.

When you come across a person who is negative, do not take it personal! Instead of feeding back into their negativity you can just shrug it off and say "They must be having a bad day, but I am having a wonderful day!"

When you come across a person who is rude, do not take it personal! Their rudeness is not because of something you did, or even who you are. Their rudeness is based on who they are. Instead of responding in a negative manner, just shrug it off and say "God, I hope that their day improves!"

Remember, just because you have decided to maintain your mental state of peace and live a life full of joy does not mean that everybody has made the same decision or are even happy that you have made that choice.

You may find that many people will see that you are peaceful and joyful and they will set out to try to destroy your peace and your joy. You have to stand firm and recognize what they are attempting to do and do not take it personal.

If you take it personal, you will be holding on to hurtful thoughts and emotions and it will counter act your inner peace and your joy
