We often hear this kind of advice from others, “Don’t take it personally”. Yeah, it is tough advice. Sometimes it seems as though the only way to take it personally. The client who doesn’t like your best work or your tennis mate doesn’t want to play with you anymore..
But the thing is- it is not personal. It’s not about you. How that could be? That person doesn’t really know you, understand what you want, or hear the murmurs in your mind. All that person knows is himself/herself.
If anybody moves on or badmouths you/your work, it’s not personal about you. It’s personal about them. Their agenda, their decisions, their story.
So buddy, do your work, the best way you know how.
