How to not take dating so seriously

Taking things personally is often a by-product of this bargain.When we take things personally we are giving certain individuals more power over us than they deserve or should ever be allowed to have.Is this the way they interact with many people, not just you?Is it their usual way to be critical, to insult, to blame or shame?

Ingeneral, it’s a good idea to create a healthy personal space around yourself.Don’t make assumptions about judgment or criticism seemingly directed at you.Maybe it’s not about you at all, but rather about them and their own perceptions projected onto you.Change the focus of the interaction by putting yourself in this other person’s shoes.Try to understand what the other person is feeling/thinking/trying to convey to you.
