A Reflection of You... Take a pen and piece of paper and write down 3 people in your life that you absolutely LOVE and 3 people in your life that you don't resonate with.
1. Write down 5 qualities about their personality that you like about them (Yes, even the people whom you don't like-I'm sure there are traits that you do like, even if you don't resonate with their whole persona).
2. Write down 5 qualities that you do not like about them.
It is often said that the people we have in our lives are a reflection of us. The traits that we enjoy about people are qualities that we, ourselves, have and the qualities that we don't care for in people are ones that we also possess. This can explain many reasons why when we don't care for someone, something inside of us gets 'triggered.'
Take your time and look at the qualities that you wrote down for each person. You may want to write down where these qualities play a role in your own life. Does this help create more compassion and understanding for the people who you don't resonate with? Does this help show you how you can relate to others in your life? Thank you!
