Sometimes we have repressed anger, guilt, shame, or other emotions that we don’t like about ourselves.
Maybe, it’s because we’ve been convinced by others, that they are “bad feelings”.
Instead of acknowledging these feelings and dealing with them in a way that’s healthy and productive, we repress them and this gives rise to a tendency to displace our feelings onto others.
This is called ‘Projecting’ and we don’t always recognise it, I certainly didn’t until I started doing this work.
A really common example is a cheating spouse who then accusing their partner of being unfaithful. But there are many more examples that show up in our every day lives.
Here I explain a little bit more about how to recognised it for what it is, which will hopefully, stop you from allowing it to derail your progress 💛
