From time-to-time I share one of those “On this day, God wants you to know” messages that I get on facebook. Usually I like what they have to say – I find them to be encouraging. But I got one the other day that has been bothering me. Here it is:
“ . . . that everything that irritates you about others, is your key to understanding yourself. What angers you in another person is an unhealed aspect of yourself. If you had already resolved that particular issue, you would not be irritated by its reflection back to you.”
I have heard this basic message before somewhere, and I don’t think I ever got it quite worked out in my mind then, either. I would be interested in hearing what you think about this statement.
