I have heard myself telling other,
"Dont take things personally..."
It is one good advice, i tell you. It is only when we develop an emotional attachement to anything that problem arises.
Lets take an example,your boss might say you are inefficient.
There are two ways to handle it:
1. Realise that he is saying that to satisfy his own ego need, and doesnt really intend it on u,
and ofcourse, see impartially, if you can improve upon anything
2. React because your ego is hurt
The first is sensible
but the second is easier...
What would be your choice in this scenario?
i try hard to follow 1..then on days, i get real emotional!
