“Shortly after reading the chapter about not taking things personally, I was on a Zoom call where the presenter directed a comment at me that could have been interpreted as rude. Rather than let it affect my whole day, I figured that’s his problem, not mine and didn’t spend another second dwelling on it! It was so liberating!”
