      1. 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.

      2. 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.”

      1. 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 πŸ™‚

      2. 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.

  1. We can learn a lot about the values we hold and how we apply meaning to situations and behaviour. We dislike them for a reason – it tells us more about ourselves than it is about them.

  2. 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.

  3. Often, what we dislike about another is something we wrestle within ourselves. What we can learn from those we dislike is to examine self. We can also learn to find something good in those we dislike and move forward.

  4. The things they do that I do not like, particularly their attitude or personality that I hate, make me realize what I should become as a person. πŸ™‚ The things that I should not do. πŸ™‚
