The people in our lives aren’t perfect; we aren’t perfect; nobody is perfect.
The things that other people do – or say – to us are almost never personal, and yet we take them personal when they hit unhealed parts of ourselves. When that happens, they often trigger a reaction: they either make us retreat in our shells and get defensive, or alternatively lash out… either way, it’s always our unresolved internal conflicts that create that effect in us – it’s not really the other people’s fault! The other people are just mirrors that show us (sometimes directly, most times indirectly) what we need to heal in ourselves.
This doesn’t mean that there aren’t bad people out there, people who try to treat you poorly and that you should put up with any of that!
In fact, it’s a perfectly good choice to avoid negative people.
But if you keep finding yourself in the same type of situation over and over again, and you keep thinking that your misfortunes are always someone else’s fault, maybe you should question whether is it good to stay in the victim’s role and keep thinking that way, or rather if it’s time to question the way you set your boundaries and how you seek to associate with people in the first place.
Every experience, every person, everything that happens to us is – can be – a lesson. Once we learn the lesson, we move onto the next one. But if we refuse to learn it, we’ll face it again and again, until we’ll recognize it for what it is and we’ll finally surrender and do the necessary inner work to grow beyond that stage.
