Mirrors Can Be Obnoxious

I wrote a bit about how other people reflect back our own qualities to us, been into Jung lately.

It’s the first one at: http://www.HalcyonMusings.com

Happy Turkey Day (or horrid day that celebrates the beginning of a mass genocide)!

Dude, making one thread dedicated to a shameless self-plug is enough.

You’ve made a bunch.

Human spambot.

@manimal, I’m sharing writing that pertains to the ideas explored in this forum and asking for discussion to further explore these ideas…isn’t that what forums are for? Apologies if I’m being inappropriate, it’s not my intention to spam.

@halcyon-musings, But you’re not asking for discussion. You are posting what you yourself have entitled musings.

And as far as I knew forums were for interaction. You’re musings would be much more tolerable at such a fast rate if you asked specific questions relating to your writing for the forum. Or better still, if you posted them to individuals who may at this moment in time find them useful…rather than them disappearing amongst a plethora of other threads anyway, perhaps missing the people who could find them most useful. Just some suggestions.

@siantastic, Sure, sure, gotcha. I’m new to using forums, thank you. My intention was to share my thoughts on how we mirror one another, and what that feels like in life…I’d love to hear other people’s thoughts and experiences on it.

@halcyon-musings, No problem, welcome to HE :)

You make a very good point in your blog post. And when I realised the same thing it helped me deal with any anger. It’s rare I get angry now. It helps me with any anger I receive from others too, and more often than not, whatever I have done wrong in their eyes, is something they themselves do too.

Thanks again. :)

That’s awesome that it helped you with angrrrr, that can be a fierce bugger!

It’s ironic that the inspiration for writing this came from me giving a homeless fellow a buck, he replied by saying, “that’s it?”. I totally obsessed about it for a couple hours, remembered Jung’s quote, and then realized that I’ve been asking too much of others. By doing things like posting sans discussion in a forum, and other actions in my life. D’oh!

@halcyon-musings, Haha! I have been through similar revelations…and it led me to a saying which I now rely on heavily;
expect nothing, appreciate everything.
