“Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears”
– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Did someone offend you today?
Or… did you let them offend you?
Remember, you don’t have to accept what someone gives you in language or action or intent.
You can choose to not follow your feeling. You can choose to know the Truth.
Save yourself the time of angst that you think is from someone else. Center up inside and take responsibility for what you know: You are a person of value, complete and whole, right now. No one is going to make you that; no one is going to take it away.
Marcus Aurelius (121 – 180) was Emperor of Rome from 161 – 180, he kept the empire safe from the Parthians and Germans, but is best known for his intellectual pursuits. He was born into a wealthy and politically prominent family. Growing up, Aurelius was a dedicated student, learning Latin and Greek. But his greatest intellectual interest was Stoicism, a philosophy that emphasized fate, reason and self-restraint. (Bio Source: Aurelius)
