"If you know that someone is speaking badly
of you behind your back, and if you react to
that negativity with a feeling of hurt, then you
destroy your own peace of mind. One's pain is
one's own creation. One should treat such
things as if they are wind behind one's ear.
In other words, just brush them aside.
To a large extent, whether or not one suffers paindepends on how one responds to a given situation.What makes a difference is whether or not one istoo sensitive and takes things too seriously."
