Other People Are Your Mirror: Learn to Read Your Reflection
1. People Get Upset with You
If people get often upset with you, examine whether you’re unconsciously mad at the world or yourself. When you realize that other people are your mirror, you can perceive irritation, upset, or anger within yourself and change it. If you encounter angry and irritated people, they mirror your anger. You might not recognize that you’re angry, but others pick up our energy regardless.
2. Others Don’t Believe in your Dreams
If this is your case, then ask yourself whether YOU believe in your dreams. Are you 100% committed to them?
How do you speak about what you want – is there a sense of lack of trust?
Others only reflect your inner doubts. Especially when you choose to change and follow what you love, it has happened to most of us that the closest people who were “supposed” to support us were questioning if what we do is the right thing.
Don’t take it as a sign that what you do is wrong. Instead, shift your perception to see that you need to support your dreams more.
3. People Tell you What You Should Do
Sometimes it’s normal that others tell you what you need to do – like at work. But if your partner, family, or friends tell you way too often what you should do, it reflects a fear of making your decisions. Others can feel whether we trust our opinions. If you don’t believe in your choice, then some people will take and advantage of it.
4. Others Lie to You
If you meet people who lie to you, then the question to ask would be whether you lie to yourself (and others)? It might be more difficult to be honest with yourself. Especially when you do something that you wish to take back. Yet in each moment, being frank with yourself is the best thing you can do. It brings self-acceptance, and it shows you who you truly are.
5. Others are Living ‘Your’ Dreams
When you know people who take the dance class, language course, or job you’ve wanted it’s a clear wake-up call for you.
It means that you can do it yourself, but for some reason, you don’t. Others show you that it can be done, and they also motivate you to take the first step.
Other People Are Your Mirror
You can take anyone and see what they reflect on you about yourself. Some reflections show what we need to heal, while others are meant to inspire us to step up. Once you shift your perception about your relationships, you can have more fun.
Instead of blaming someone, you can think; oh, that’s interesting information. Thank you, I’ll support myself more.
This is one of the purposes of relationships. Other people are our gifts. Even when we don’t like them. Everyone has a message for you.
