Have you ever heard it said that the things you see and dislike in others are things you probably dislike about yourself?
When you see things about other people that you don't like, can it teach you anything about yourself?
For instance, if you look at someone and think, "He's angry, and I don't like that," could it be that you don't like it when you, yourself are angry? If you look at someone and say, "She's really scared. Why doesn't she just do it?" could it be there's something you are scared about that you wish you would just "do"?
Suppose you disapprove of smoking but don't smoke yourself, so you wonder how that could be about you.
Well, ask yourself, "Why do I disapprove of smoking?"
Perhaps it's because smoking is unhealthy.
If you look within yourself, you may find that you, too, do things that are unhealthy which trouble you.
Or perhaps you may disapprove because you consider smoking inconsiderate, and there are ways that you, too, are inconsiderate. You see, when we judge others, and if we look within, we will usually find a similar judgment about ourselves.
Now, judgments never do any good, but once you understand what you're really doing, you can, if you choose, decide to stop. So, the next time you disapprove of someone else, take a look within and see what you can learn about yourself.
