There are always going to be jerks in our lives, whether it was the person who cut you off or the person who hurried just to get ahead of you in line at the super market, there are always going to be those people who don’t seem to have any regard for others. You don’t always need to inject yourself into their world, we often have things we don’t like about ourselves that we project onto others. This is a form of abuse, and you should look to find other ways of resolving your own personal conflict.
- Projection allows us to see what we can’t tolerate within ourselves. When we see things we hate in other people, we won’t allow it to align with us.
- Patrolling is when we observe behavior and insult people when their behavior is deemed wrong by our morals.
- We will always experience a great deal of conflict if we can’t be happy for other peoples successes and accomplishments.
“By pausing and taking a break, we can work through our unproductive reactions and start repairing and building meaningful relationships.”
