“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?”
From We are all mirrors
What do you see in your mirrors?
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.”
From “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
Look in your mirror and stay awake 😉
“Your eyes are like a mirror and what you see in me is a reflection of you”
From Dimensions of Life
“The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.”
