How Others Help Us Understand OURSEVLES!

Ever met someone you simply couldn’t get along with? 🤔

Say you’re introduced to a new person. But as you get to know then, something about them just ‘rubs you the wrong way’ and you don’t like them. Ever had that feeling before? 👐

There was once an online acquaintance I met. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but for some reason I just didn’t enjoy talking to him. In my perspective my ego was saying he was “overconfident” and “cocky”. 🗣️

I felt this person was not someone I could see myself getting along with long-term… 👍

There’s the quote: “Every problem introduces a person to himself.” At first it bothered me that I didn’t understand why I disliked this person. But then I thought about it in a different way:

🌟 “What does my dislike for this person say about ME?” 🌟

After further thinking, I discovered this key nugget: He wasn’t in fact “overconfident” or “cocky”. That was only in my interpretation of his behavior. There were many others that didn’t see his words or actions like I did! 😲

⚠️ In fact: What I rejected about him were things I actually reject within myself. ⚠️

I have had fears in the past of my content online coming off as “overconfident” and “cocky”. In psychology, the term is called projection: I unconsciously attributed the things I fear about myself and claimed they were in another person! 😲

It’s why self awareness is so important! The more you become aware of yourself and how you function, the better you can help others in similar situations. Remember: It’s not just for Me, but We. 🌎

The next time you feel the need to criticize another person, flip the criticism back at you. It doesn’t mean you’re wrong, but it’s so you can ask yourself what you can learn about yourself from these feelings. 😁 #TranscendLabels
