We project all our likes, loves, fears and inadequacies on to the world, if we give these qualities to others we either do not have to experience them or we don’t have the fear of failing to achieve them. Our projections are often influenced by what happened in our childhood and who influenced us the most then.
Sometimes we can even make our projections work on other people, so if you say ‘she’s always angry‘, subconsciously you can behave in a way that make her angry, fulfilling you initial statement. But deep down you are angry and something is stopping you expressing it.
So next time you say the world is cruel is it your cruelty you are projecting? If you tell everyone how kind your friend is, is it something you want to be? Give us a call and see if we can help you to find out what is just your reflection.
