Daily Dose of Self Love

Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!

Self Love Practice Tip #21

In today’s post we will talk about how other people projecting their own insecurities onto you affects your confidence and self love. So generally is someone comments negatively about your body, then it’s likely that they are feeling uncomfortable about their own bodies. Consider this as a fact. When are trying to follow and healthy diet and exercise regime, we get so judgmental about others and their bodies. Like we start thinking about how lazy they are for not taking appropriate measures for their health. You start commenting on what they are eating, how many hours they are sleeping, how they are wasting time watching TV, Netflix or just browsing through the phones. To be real, I have been that person and I have people in my inner circle who are those people. I feel horrible but awareness of being wrong is the first step towards correcting the action.

But think about it, when you see something in somebody else, whether positive to negative, generally it’s always a projection. So if you see something you don’t like in somebody else, maybe it’s time to look inside and see what is it about that person or what is it about you which has triggered this projection in you. We will talk about how this works on positive projections too in tomorrow’s post.

I hope you will stop and think next time you are projecting something or at someone. Come back tomorrow for more self love tips.

    Duuuuuude this happened to me so much when I was younger! Certain people were constantly projecting making me and others feel bad. But…Lessons learned for sure. Took a minute there to get it but now that I’m older totally brush that stuff off πŸ™‚ good reminders thanks!

      Glad this post reminded you of the negativity people project. As soon as you try to discuss, explain, defend, argue, teach, cry, attack back, give yourself up, project back, or any number of other ways of protecting against the projection, the person projecting can now do exactly what they want to do – which is to focus on what you are doing rather than on themselves.

      Glad you liked the post Amber. Like a lot of aspects of human behavior, projection comes down to self-defense. Projecting something you don’t like about yourself onto someone else protects you from having to acknowledge parts of yourself you don’t like. Humans tend to feel more comfortable seeing negative qualities in others rather than in themselves.
