You see, our relationships with others mirror back to us the area's within ourselves that still need healing, maturity, acceptance, development, strengthening, and growth. So it follows that a perceived weakness or other irritant we can easily see, and quickly judge, in others may actually be something we are subconsciously rejecting, denying, dismissing or refusing to accept about ourselves. Which, ironically, is why it's so easy to detect it in other people.
So before you harshly judge that trait or habit about that co-worker, roommate, friend, family member, neighbor or mate that gets on your nerves so badly, ask Spirit to reveal to you what that person has come to mirror to you about you. Ask that it be revealed to you in a way that you will clearly understand.
Invite the Holy Spirit to show you the part(s) of you that you need to accept, heal, or mature within yourself the most that this person has been attracted into your life to help you realize. Then practice patience when interacting with that person while trusting the universe to respond to your request in a timely manner and perfect way. Also, pay attention and remain alert so that you don't miss the answer when it shows up.
Once you've received the answers you asked Spirit for give thanks. Then begin doing the inner work necessary to change, heal or accept that part of you that is being reflected back to you through the other person. Once you do this one of two things will happen. The other person will suddenly no longer do that "thing" that irritates you so much. Or they will suddenly leave your life path in a most peaceful and harmonious way.
In either case, the second most important commandment Jesus gave in Mark 12:28-31 is to, "love your neighbor as thyself". But before you can truly uphold and fulfill this commandment you must learn to completely love and accept yourself without judgment first. In other words, you cannot give away what you have not yet fully acquired. Loving and accepting yourself wholly is a prerequisite to loving and accepting another. So attached below is a wonderful affirmation on self love to help you get started.
Read it. Then tuck it under your pillow to pull out and repeat every time you find something about yourself to nick pick or something about another that irritates you. Use it as a tool to help you learn to love and accept all of you...just as you are. So you can learn to love and accept others just the same.
Until next time....I surround you in Love & Light! Sleep well...Good Night!
