LikeLiked by 5 people Reply Well spoken! LikeLiked by 2 people Reply How do you spot it? LikeLike Reply Not so easy, it takes time to observe the inconsistencies. But generally it’s about noticing all the hypocrisy. You can’t tell if they’re manipulating you if you don’t know them, just as well as if you don’t know yourself. Actions speak louder than their words. LikeLiked by 2 people Yes! Actions always speak louder than words! LikeLiked by 1 person I remember the first time I met (my now brother in law), I told him my name. And apparently my reputation preceded myself! He said to me “I’ve heard a lot of bad things about you.” I laughed and was like “Ok. Well, instead of believing everything you hear, why don’t you get to know me first and then make your own mind up.” LikeLiked by 1 person I like how you behaved in that situation. You know how and who you are and you don’t let rumors define you! That’s awesome! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person I was 18.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wouldn’t you say you are more observant of those you don’t like verses those you do like? Or maybe it is just me. LikeLiked by 1 person I guess so. But it’s very important what’s the purpose for that observation. It can be either to spot any negativity coming towards us so we can respond to it or to understand the main reason for it. But yeah, you’re right. I do that too. I like to observe all people 🙂 LikeLike It is totally true. We are wary around those we perceive as threats so we watch them like a hawk. As if prepared for any strike. And the people we do like we are comfortable with them, so we lower our guards and just enjoy the moment. Unless we’re mistrusting and suspect.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I find that I am more capable of change than they are able to change. LikeLiked by 1 person That’s true.

LikeLiked by 3 people Reply When we see other people behaving in a certain way we don’t like and after that we catch ourselves doing the same thing, it can be a wake-up call. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Absolutely it can! I’ve corrected some behaviors just because of it.

We dislike them for a reason – it tells us more about ourselves than it is about them. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I totally agree with that! If we understand why we dislike them, we get one step forward with our self-development process. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply How not to treat living beings.

LikeLiked by 1 person I guess the easiest thing to learn would be learning how not to behave or what not to do so you don’t become someone like them. A bit more difficult lesson would be learning how to start liking them in order to avoid negative emotions. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes, it’s a tricky experience.
