“We project our own perceived shortcomings onto others. We say to others what we should be saying to ourselves. When we judge others we are judging ourselves. If you constantly beat yourself up with negative thoughts, you will either beat up on the people around you – verbally, emotionally, physically – or you will beat up on yourself by destroying some areas of your own life. What you do and what you say is no accident.
When you call someone a name for making a mistake, stop and think whether you would call yourself the same name. If you are being honest the answer will invariably be yes. The world is a giant mirror always reflecting back parts of ourselves.”
Debbie Ford, in “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers”
