The Curse of Insight – It Takes One to Know One

self_reflection

Have you ever noticed how people who are the most suspicious often turn out themselves to not be trustworthy once you really get a look behind the curtain? How about a person who acts moral, and is outspoken about and judgmental of others…until later the truth about that individual is revealed? What about the therapist who sees disfunction all around, but is riddled with inner turmoil?

What you tend to see in others is a reflection of yourself. Of the baggage that you’re carrying. That doesn’t mean you are wrong about them. In fact, you may be immanently qualified to see through all the disguises and distractions to the truth that those people themselves may not even know. But it probably does mean your assessment is somewhat out of balance. It’s as much about yourself as them.
