Another’s behavior toward you, is a reflection of their relationship with themselves.
First, think about someone who has treated you in a way that is less than respectful.
Who are they and what is their general attitude about life and themselves?
I would guarantee they have issues with respecting and loving themselves.
Or they may be going through something that is creating lots of lower vibration feelings and thoughts inside of them.
So, due to either of these reasons, it’s difficult for a person to treat another in a way that they are not able to treat themselves.
Can you see, given what I just stated, that another’s behavior toward you, is a reflection of what is going inside of them?
The projection of another in no way defines our own value, unless we allow that.
Furthermore, a person who is mean and disrespectful, especially consistently, lacks self esteem and self-worth.
The trick is to remember all of this the next time someone treats you disrespectfully. As your own self-love and self-worth increase, you will be able to more easily allow this type of behavior to roll off of you, like water on Teflon.
As I often do, I found some information on the internet, about my topic. I’ll include the link at the bottom if you want to read more.
“We come to understand ourselves best through our relationships with other people.
When certain characteristics in someone’s personality triggers a negative reaction from you, there is something within you that is coming up because it is ready to be healed. Usually, it represents issues from your past that have gone unresolved.
Every person we meet in life is showing up at the perfect time in our lives to reflect something we need to heal within ourselves. Or they are showing us a new lesson we need to learn.”
One of these lessons may be self-forgiveness.
“Believe it or not, forgiving YOURSELF is the most effective way to disengage from negative interactions with people. We can only love and accept others to the degree that we love and accept ourselves.”
As a result of being aware of the things I’m talking about, you may find yourself in the presence of higher vibration people more often or as some would say, positive people.
If you remember the Universal Laws I speak about often, you can attract only that which is running at the same or similar vibration you’re at.
I’ll share an example I experienced recently of ceasing to react at all, to disrespectful behavior.
When my ex-husband and I divorced and for many years later, most interactions we had, were horrible.
Because of all the work I have done on myself, over the last 20 years since our divorce was final, I was able to cease to react to an unkind comment my ex made about me recently.
We were both at my daughter and husbands in Florida after the birth of our granddaughter.
He apologized shortly afterward for his comment. To give him credit as well, he must have done lots of work on himself to apologize so readily.
This is in contrast to past interchanges we have had.
Finally, I know first hand, this can be achieved inside of you, as you practice all the things I’m talking about in this article.
Consider the freedom you will feel as you achieve the knowledge that another’s behavior toward you is a reflection of their relationship with themselves and not about your value.
Here’s to you practicing all these tips, to cease to react at all!

PSS. I shared the quote above, on social media a couple weeks ago. It has close to 1,800 interactions. I knew this was a topic to expand on!
