A Friend recommended I watch the TEDx talk “How not to take things personally?” by Frederik Imbro

If you were to meet me, you would quickly learn that I have a pension to take most anything personally. As I develop better self-awareness, I am beginning to understand that for almost every instance of me taking things; personally, the negative thought is in my head, not the person’s behavior in question. This Ted talk by Frederik Imbo helped me in my journey to not take what someone says to me personally.

Another TEDx talk I found helpful. “Own Your Behaviours, Master Your Communication, Louise Evans | TEDxGenova

And another TEDx talk “Increase your self-awareness with one simple fix.” Tasha Eurich | TEDxMileHigh. And an article in Harvard Business Review by Tasha Eurich including helpful info graphics.

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
