“It’s not your job to love me—it’s mine”

"It’s not your job to like me—it’s mine” is a inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. The saying has been attributed to American speaker and author Byron Katie since 2007.

“It’s not your job to love me—it’s mine” was printed in the book Question Your Thinking, Change the World (2007) by Byron Katie. The correct quotation—with “love,” not “like”—has only rarely been printed on images.


Wikipedia: Byron Katie
Byron Kathleen Mitchell, better known as Byron Katie (born December 6, 1942) is an American speaker and author who teaches a method of self-inquiry known as “The Work of Byron Katie” or simply as “The Work”. She is the founder of Byron Katie International, an organization that includes The School for the Work and Turnaround House in Ojai, California. TIME describes her as “a spiritual innovator for the 21st century.”
