it’s always personal

A lot of people have told me throughout my years that I take things too personally. I cause myself unnecessary pain and suffering by thinking that things I believe, do, and say or that are done and said to me are personal. Well…that is completely true. And no one can say it better than Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly in You’ve Got Mail.

I suppose I could try to thicken my skin or morph my personality to be someone who isn’t 24/7 passionate about my work, but I don’t think that would allow me to be true to myself. If we are truly fearfully and wonderfully made then I want to respect that God gave me passions and one of those passions is learning. I get to be passionate about learning and growing and I believe that it may cause me pain now and again. So be it.
