Everyone We Know is a Mirror of Ourselves

Every person we know and relate to is a mirror of ourselves. What we reject in someone else we reject in ourselves. What we love in others we love in ourselves. The outer is all a reflection of our own psychology. Our own hang-ups, our own aspirations, beliefs, attitudes – our shortcomings and beauties, joys and fears – they are all right there staring you in the face when you look into the eyes of everyone you know. This is especially true with those in our lives that we are closest to. With this realization I’m not sure what exactly happens… Maybe it is compassion.
