My next blogs will go into the toxic psychological behaviors others might have that hurt peoples' self-esteem. My goal is to help you identify these traits and learn how to combat them.
Here is one trait that might have been used to make you feel inferior. It is called projection.
Simply, projection refers to unconsciously taking unwanted emotions or traits you don't like about yourself and attributing them to someone else. Some of the people you know have difficulties admitting they are ever wrong and are quick to shift the blame to you whenever they are caught doing something they know is wrong.
They know that they are wrong — usually from the reactions of others, but they find it humiliating to confess that their view might be challenged, so they project their own traits on others.
The best way to deal with these people is to have your facts ready, and say, " I hear what you are saying, let me see if what I am hearing is correct and patriot back what they are telling you, then give them the facts. If they are just giving you an opinion about someone that is gossip, you just say, "I have not experienced that when I dealt with her." This is just two examples about projection that will be dealt with in the course.
