5 Reasons why we take things so personally.


When something bad happens or when someone says something that we don’t like, we all have the ability to take things personally.


We get triggered. We get upset. And before you know it, we’re energetically thrown off.


And then we say things like, “What the heck?” “Why’d that person have to treat me that way?” or “What the heck is their problem?”


So, we grab our phones, put on our “why me” caps and vent to our friends, partners, or family members, and before you know it, one of them tells you:


“Aww, don’t worry about it”




“It’ll be fine, just forget about it”




“Let it go.”


Or the, “I’m sure they didn’t mean to say it like that.”


And just like that, we’re re-triggered all over again. Order up! You’ve just gotten another serving of taking shit personally.


People typically say these statements to make us feel better, but it only makes us feel way worse. And they’re missing the point.


But have you ever wondered why we take things so personally?


Let’s talk about the psychology behind this.


Join me for this insightful podcast episode where I share 5 reasons why we take things so personally.


Wondering what you can do to practice the art of not taking things so personally?


Be kinder to yourself, have compassion for yourself as a whole, and give yourself grace to make mistakes (and learn from trial and error).


One way to develop more self-connection and self-compassion is to get to know yourself better on a deeper level. On a level of inner wiring.


If you’re an empath who is interested in learning about your empath nature and your personality type, I’d love to invite you to join me in my Empath Empowerment Coaching Program.
