A few weeks ago, I went to a shabbos kallah. While sitting around, we took turns giving the kallah a blessing and some advice. Something that really stuck out for me is what a certain lady said about not taking things personally.
Recently, I was talking to someone, and we came to the topic of different wines. I mentioned a few I know, and they said that they had no idea what I was talking about. I felt offended because it sounded like they were saying that they didn't know what I was saying. And so I told them, and they said that they knew what I was saying, they just don't know that brand of wine. And so I told them that they should have just said that, so it would be more clear. And they said that there's more than one way to say things. Then I decided that I should probably not take it personally. They didn't mean it the way it sounded. I guess I just didn't like the tone.
