What do you see in your mirrors?

“Have you ever wondered why you are triggered by certain people?

Are there people in your life (present or past) that make you feel frustrated, drained, angry?

Perhaps you have people that also uplift, motivate and make you feel great just being in their presence.

Regardless of how people make you feel, the truth is no one can make you feel anything. They just trigger the feelings already inside you.

Ouch! For most people that realization falls flat because the ego comes up and says. “No way! That person is just so aggravating and I hate the way they make me feel! That’s not who I Am!”

Everyone you meet and build a relationship with are mirrors to a part of who you are. …what are they mirroring back to you about areas in your life?”

    I was watching a politician last night on TV and getting very upset, may be I should be looking at why?!! Thank you! ❤

    Oh yes, I certainly do see myself in other–and usually those things I don’t like. Good to be reminded! 🙂

    Exellent and right on! It’s up to us to deal with why a certain person upsets US, not what’s wrong with them. We can’t change others, only how we let them affect us! Nice post.

      Very good point, Laura, and a very empowering one. Once we get a better understanding of why we get triggered or why we are reacting in a certain way, we can start changing this the way that works the best for us. We can take an active role in this process rather than allowing ourselves to be constantly ‘triggered’ by other people or circumstances in life.

    Wouldn’t it be nice instead of looking for someone to make us feel better, that we look for someone to make feel better.
    This is what your post caused me to think.

    Totally agree. I have been learning this myself lately. People cannot make me feel a certain way, I make myself feel that way. It’s a choice.

    This is so true – scary but true.
