There are times when we are unconscious of our wounds. In the same way, there are also times when we are unconscious of our strengths. If you are drawn to the negative qualities of a person, you are being invited into the same qualities of yourself.
This may be a little difficult to believe, but think about it. Why else would you notice such negativity in someone else? It’s only because you are looking at it in such a way and see that in yourself. Change your outlook and your vision will also change.
“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.” – Shakti Gawain
