Enjoyed your post, Pamelah. Brought this back to me: When I found out my guy was having an affair, he said, "It's not about you." It stabbed ME right through the heart.

Pamelah Landers

Nancy, so well stated!

Studying Buddhism, one learns that people create problems for themselves when they inject themselves (their tender feelings) into the center of every issue. If you can have the insight to remove yourself from the issue and look at it for what it is--it is not about you--then you will save yourself from a lot of pain. When you are feeling hurt, check to see where your ego is; if you are focusing only on yourself and only on how you feel, then you are not seeing the whole situation. It's taken me years to develop this self-check habit, and I'm interested to see what you talk about next week.

Pamelah Landers

Talia, thanks for commenting. Next week there are some examples so more tangible insight to come!

Jodine, I love how the universe works - that something I'm sharing so speaks to you in perfect timing! I guess we are all one!

Pamelah Landers

Denise, thank you for sharing this. The time it takes to learn about yourself so you can be a gift to others is priceless! It is how love spreads - self-love is the deal!

Talia

Thank you for sharing, Pamelah. I'm looking forward to reading the next developments on this topic. I'm particularly interested because I (and I'm sure many others!) have encountered instances where someone "dumps their garbage" on you, lashes out, makes a remark, etc. and how this about them and what they are dealing with and not you/me.

Pamelah,
I love the synchronicity. In my morning meditation I got a strong message that some conflicts I was experiencing were 'Not About Me"! Your post helps me validate and remember this!
thanks!

Denise

So true! After reading several insightful books and listening to the inner me for several years, I came to realize this as well. People view us based on what's going on inside of them (e.g. their perceptions, past experiences, beliefs). The blessing is that as we start loving ourselves, we start seeing others as more loving/worthy of being loved. That's how love spreads.
