Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes all deal with the subject of projecting one’s anger and frustrations of life onto another…

“I can feel pretty critical of people, and I understand that sort of feeling of when you’re going through something that’s painful, taking it out on the world and projecting onto other people, finding faults with other people, because it’s harder to find faults in yourself.” (Noah Baumbach)

“Those who habitually point out other people’s faults make the least desirable partners.” (Dr. Greg Kushnick)

“The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the project of our shadow onto others.” (Carl Jung)

“If you want to know what you think of yourself, then ask yourself what you think of others and you will find the answer.” (Seth)

“Living in a box means being convinced that other people and our circumstances are responsible for our feelings and our helplessness to overcome them. What we can’t see when we’re in the box is that the way the world appears to us is a projection, and that we are making this projection to justify ourselves in self-betrayal. We cannot see that it’s not others’ actions but our accusation that result in our feeling offended.” (C. Terry Warner)
