I am the queen of projection. Constantly giving my advice with things I need to work on myself. Learning to identify this lovely personality trait and tackling it head-on has been an eye opening experience.
Have you ever said something that made you cringe because it sounded just like your mother or father? Not that we cringe to think of them so much as we don’t want to become them. We love our individuality and realizing we are more like our parents than we thought makes that apple fall closer to the tree doesn’t it?
I have many flaws. I’m sure you do to (right?). Recognizing them and keeping the focus on myself is much more realistic than trying to fix everyone around me. Obsession, denial, projection..oh my!
Here’s where you tell me — What advice do you give that you need to take yourself?
