Why people tend to project what they are thinking and feeling onto other people in order to make themselves feel better, and to also absolve themselves from any blame or personal responsibility.
In this video coaching newsletter, I discuss two different emails from two different viewers. The first email is a follow up success story of what happened next to the viewer whose email I discussed in my video newsletter, “Friend-Zoned.” His email that I discussed previously had been sent in almost four months ago, and much has happened since then. He’s continued to build on his success with the same woman. The second email is from a guy who has been getting friend-zoned off and on with his girlfriend of the past several years. He started following my work last year and was able to successfully re-attract her, but he was only able to maintain that success and her attraction for a few months before she broke up with him and stuck him back in friends-zone once again. He asks my opinion on what he should do now. I point out some of the major red flags she has shown him that he is overlooking that are the root of their problems.
“People tend to project what they are thinking and feeling on the inside onto other people in order to disassociate from it and absolve themselves of any blame or responsibility. This is why we should never take anything that anyone else says or does to us personally, because they are simply projecting what’s inside of them. When people call you names or say mean things, they are reflecting what they think and feel about themselves. When people do nasty things to you, they are treating you how they feel about themselves in that moment. Don’t take a**holes seriously, and don’t take their insults personally. Why? It’s not about you, it’s about them.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
