I can tell a lot about a person by
what they choose to see in me.
I have to admit that it took me a long time, a lot of working on my 'stuff', to actually really get this.
Everyone in your life is a mirror. What you see in them is also in you, good or bad.
If you know a person that really bugs you, there's just something about him that really turns you off ... you also have the same traits. You are actually hating on yourself. The irritating people are simply reflecting parts of your own consciousness back to you, giving you the opportunity to really see yourself. On the other side of the coin, the qualities you most admire in others are also your own.
Once you recognize that everyone is a mirror, and you understand that it is YOU being reflected back at you; then there is no need to blame anyone, judge anyone or become a victim due to someone else's words or actions.
Now, back to the one that bugs you so much ... what is he showing you about yourself? He has some trait that annoys you, but you also have that trait. Look into it, dig deep, and you can start doing the work to rid yourself of that annoying quality. This person has given you a gift. Now you have something to work with, the only person you can ever change is yourself, your attitude and reactions. This is a time for gratitude, not anger or hate.
"Everyone is a mirror of yourself, your own thinking is coming back to you."
People are seeing the same in you, something that they need to work on, or that they admire. We are all connected and we choose certain people to help us on our journey.
