Self-Reflection

>> Saturday, November 15, 2008

Look for the pattern.  What you put out there for others, is a reflection of your own internal issues.  If you feel the need to behave meanly toward others, it's a dead giveaway as to what's going on for you. The Converse is also true. It's all in the pattern.  Look for the pattern.

Sadly, many of those people are unable to face their own feelings at all...so they live in denial.

So does that mean I have to love Speedy too? But in all seriousness, you're right ZZ. Some people have issues and don't even know it. They just have to look in the mirror instead of placing blame on someone else.

HA HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

That's funny Rolando .... really, it is.


This is very true. The inward love / or hate, is amplified and sent back through the speakers of the human radio.

Ginger - Denial's a good word.
And Self-Awareness would work wonders too.

Rolando - You don't *have* to love Speedcat, but you know you do! Just like I do. :)
Placing the blame on others.
Taking responsibility for their own behavior. Now *that's* a concept. I know a few people like that. One of them makes real snide comments and passive-aggressive comments alot. And each time that happens it only lends credence to Harris's quote, more and more.

Speedy - Oooh, "Speakers of the human radio"! Nice analagy!
It's interesting, I'm mindful of the patterns. Cause that's how you can easily tell. It's not simply a matter of someone just having a bad day. There's a pattern. There always is. So, if someone is projecting onto others, what they themselves are feeling, it's usually a pattern that they do that with other people as well.
Notice the pattern. :)

very true statement.
there's much irony in the fact that people who consistently say Mean things, whether it's direct or passively, have no EFFEN CLUE how much it really says something about them. the irony is while the person may be trying to belittle or put down another, anyone who hears that garbage realizes it's more about the person saying that stuff. it really makes them looking like the idiot, not the person they are trying to put down.
i love the irony of it.

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
