Don’t Wear Every Shoe That Fits πŸ™…πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

The thing of incessantly taking offence on what people say (or do to us) does make us come across as immature…

Β 

Often people will say and do things that have absolutely nothing to do with us but somehow we would intentionally perceive them as though they are being said or done to us πŸ™ƒ

It is not everything that is said to us that we have to dignify with a response. Even when some things are said directly to us, it has absolutely nothing to do with us. Many of us will, at times, find ourselves too concerned and too preoccupied by what others are saying that we’re so determined to own whatever is being said out of the conviction that it is being said to us πŸ˜–

Β 

Dignifying some statements with a response often proves a level of immaturity on our behalf. We are too preoccupied with fault-finding that we sometimes overlook the possibility that whatever the next person has to say probably has absolutely nothing to do with us πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Β 

How then does one determine what they should or shouldn’t respond to?

Β 

It is rather simple really. Unless directly addressed to you, a generalised statement cannot be about you or directed to you πŸ’―

It requires a certain level of maturity to realise that just because the shoe fits, it doesn’t then automatically means you must wear it πŸ‘ 

Β 

Not every shoe that is your size belongs to you. Refrain from claiming ownership of it – stop wearing every shoe that is your foot size. Some are unnecessary and inappropriate for you as an individual πŸ™…πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ
