Don't take anything personally. Nothing that others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their reality, their dream. If you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you will not be a victim of endless suffering. Do not assume anything.
Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as possible to avoid misunderstandings, bitterness and drama. This agreement is enough to completely transform your life.
Always do your best. Your best changes from moment to moment; it is different if you are sick or if you are healthy. Whatever the circumstances, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
Don Miguel Ruiz
