Others are Our Mirrors

People are in our lives for us to learn from them. Within our relationships we have the ability to learn great lessons about ourselves. Sometimes this can be a lesson in love. Other times we have difficult lessons to learn to show us where we love-not. Regardless of the nature of the lesson, the way others treat us is a direct reflection of the way we are treating ourselves. 

As many times as I’ve learned this, it often remains elusive in that I get caught in the mode of asking myself why someone is doing something to me. This is the voice of the victim. In truth, we will not only allow others to treat us any worse than we treat ourselves. So when we recognize this, we can begin to choose differently.

We often seek from others the things we believe we cannot give to ourselves. We see in how others treat us a glimpse of how we treat ourselves. So if you want to be treated better by others, investigate where you are treating yourself poorly and chose to change how you treat yourself. When we love and respect ourselves, we then bring into our lives people who can love and respect us.

  1. I agree with people being our mirrors but not totally. I feel some people come into your life to challenge us irregardless if they are the same as us or not. As soon as they come in they leave. There is truth if you do not like somebody it is because that particular behavior is in yourself and subconsciously you dislike that behavior. On the flip side other people in your life may not have that behavior that is in you. They may act up and you are reacting to an injustice which is part or your morality and suggest nothing in your behavior that you have in common with them.
