    If I'm right the translation would be "to take things to heart"

    quiero decir tomarse las cosas muy en serio cuando te dicen algo, como estar a la defensiva

    I think you're right.
    Possibly also to take things seriously.

    A to take things seriously podrías añadirle un too y decir to take things too seriously, y así suena más enfático :)

    to take things personally o to take things too personally; eso implica más estar a la defensiva
