Irritational inspirational quote

Irritational inspirational quote

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding about ourselves.

Certain people rub us the wrong way. We are not exactly sure what it is about them that we don't like: maybe it's the way they talk, look or act. But we do know that we don't like them, and our reaction seems out of proportion to a particular offense.

If we look closer, we may find that the irritation has nothing to do with anything these people have done or many not have done. Rather, they may simply remind us of others from our past with whom we have had problems. Or maybe, they remind us of things that we don't necessarily like in ourselves. What we are reacting to is something in our own history or personality.

When I find myself reacting negatively to someone, I try to figure out if the irritation is really something about me.
