When we take things personally we are giving people more power over us than they deserve or should ever be allowed to have.

You are trusting someone else to tell you who you are, instead of relying on what you know to be true about yourself.

I remember when I was co-directing a preschool, when one of our students said to her grandmother (my co-director), “Mariah said I am not a princess.” Her grandmother said, “Is that true?” She thought about it for awhile and responded, “No, it’s not true. I am a princess!” And her grandmother’s response was classic, “Always remember who you are.” 😀
