Entry #1 Get Over Yourself Principles For Adult (Intrapersonal) And That Means You and Me

Introducing, Get Over Yourself Please
  1. If you are in a petty conflict and someone accused you of something that you "said", or "did" that was unfavorable, let the individual speak to you and try not react. Does everyone know what reacting really means? Make certain to apologize for hurting their feelings, and then let them feel their feelings. Get over yourself and don't make their accusation about you
  2. If you are a messenger of unkind thoughts and words of others, you are at fault  even more so than the person who said it. The messenger is to blame for the bad thought. 
  3. Don't care what others say about you, because you really can't win can you? Someone always has some negative (which comes from them) things to say about you and/or other people. 
  4. Be in agreement that what people could say about you "good" or "bad" is probably true. If you care, then listen and change it. 
  5. Don't be angry because your friend, partner or child is angry at you. Listen to them (ask them not to shout please). Don't react. People are allowed to get angry, children, everyone why do we have this emotion?.
  6. Stop talking about yourself so much unless you are saving this world and telling us how you are doing it. What we have to say isn't that interesting, really, we are all talking all day long, 
  7. Stop comparing yourself to others, really, especially if you are in a good place. That is such a sign of insecurity. People are exactly where they are supposed to be. Get Over Yourself, Please if you think how you raise your children, manage your family, or lover better than others. No one is better than anyone, ever. 
  8. When someone is talking about their success, their adventure or their favorite thing, don't chime in and say you did or have it too, please don't steal their light it is rude and boring. 
  9. When you really restrain your emotions and motivations from many life situations and remove ourselves, (me and me and how about me, all day long, conscious or unconscious) it is an very easy and peaceful place to be (if you are lucky person in this world to be loved, warm and healthy).  Try Getting Over Yourself for one day, it is fun, we promise.
  10. Stop expecting gifts, phone calls, thank you letters, or to be invited to social gatherings.  Get Over Yourself, Please in terms of having a problem with someone/people for not delivering on these things that you have envisioned in your head.
