Taking things personally is a central Consciousness Way term and concept. It means that there is a psychological situation in which the person becomes involved entirely with the personal problem. Taking things personally begins when the inner involvement is going and swelling until it loses the relation of proportionality to the importance of the event itself. And as it swells, so does the person and loses himself in it.
For example, your good friend claims you do not consider their feelings enough. And here, the taking things personally begin to swell and swell for four days, overshadowing everything else. In this state, the person becomes either divorced from himself or antagonistic towards the person who caused him to take it personally.
In this, some questions come up:
One: “Aren’t there any ‘positive ways of Taking things personally?”
Well, no! There are no positive ways of Taking things personally. That is because the emotional system is open in the correct emotional state. And in Taking things personally, it becomes closed, so there is no flow.
Two: “What happens to the intellect while Taking things personally?” The blow of Taking things personally goes from the body to the head. And once it is in the head, it makes the thinking and consciousness flat and weak.
Once Taking things personally is in the brain, it goes into an intellectual loop.
