Let's Feel Great, Issue #006 --, Take a good look at yourself...!
August 01, 2007
Last month I promised I'd talk about how to deal with people you don't like, who irritate you, etc in the next newsletter. So the time has come. If you are attracting people like that in your life then what I have to tell you might be of great help.
By the way if you would like to contact me about anything please just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to hear from you.
Great Quote (one of my favorites)
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
----from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
Take a good look at yourself..!
You are probably asking yourself “Why is she telling me to take a good look at myself?”. Don’t worry it will all be clear at the end of this message (I hope).
I love meeting new people, because I know that everyone that comes into my life is there for a reason. Luckily most of the time I meet people I like, but of course every once in a while I’ll run into someone I wish I’d never met before.
What has made it a lot easier for me to deal with people like that, is the fact that I once learned (I don’t remember who told me or where I read about it) that the people in our lives are a reflection of who we are. Let me say that another way. The people around you represent certain aspects of your self. The reason you meet them is to help you deal with things you may not like about yourself or you don’t realize you do yourself.
So the next time you meet somebody who is getting to you, ask yourself “What is it about that person that really annoys me?”. If you think that person is very selfish or arrogant ask yourself “Do I do things I believe to be selfish or arrogant and am I willing to chance that?”.
I have noticed the moment I’m able to determine what it is about the other person I can’t stand and why, I am able to tolerate their company a lot better. Especially after I look inside myself and make the conscious decision to change my own behavior.
I know this may sound easier than it is, but one thing that has really helped me is the energy therapy “Be Set Free Fast” (BSFF). There’s a link at the bottom of this message if you’d like to know more about it.
So, if you are in a relationship right now and wondering why in the world you ended up with that person “Take a good look at yourself”. There’s a good chance you’ll realize why and once you deal with whatever it is you need to deal with you’ve made another step closer to feeling great about yourself. As long as you don’t, you’ll be given opportunities to do so and most likely keep meeting people or run into circumstances to help you.
And remember you always have the choice to end a relationship. You decide what happens in your life. You create your reality…
