Hello to all. I am curious to see how others are able to pass day by day and not take things personal, not get mad and angry with others in these times. I am fairly new to practice the spiritual thinking: 10 years or so. But I always had so much compassion for everyone, always put others before me, trying to help if I can. However there are situations and even persons that make my blood boil... I was reading Osho and Thorwald Dethlefsen, which gave me a lot of info about the fact that there's more to life than coping with others and living through life meaningless. I figure that my basic problem is that I'm selfish. I take things personal, and I'm so deep asleep that I can't help myself. The worst is that even with all that knowledge (which seems nothing compared to what I have been reading here on the forums) I feel so alone. Each time I'm talking about spirituality and different ways of living and seeing things, others are looking funny at me or changing subject. Am I suppose to stop caring about other people's opinion and put myself first or put everyone before me and be a slave? Maybe seeing a psychologist will help? Please don't hesitate to give your opinion, I really appreciate any kind of advice. Sincerely S.V.
