“Many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings towards other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves; if you're not comfortable
within yourself, you can't be comfortable
~Sidney J.Harris ~
It is said that you cannot give to another what you do not possess.
If this is true then we must also consider the thought that you cannot project anger towards another unless you are first angry with yourself.
Whatever you internalize is eventually materialized.
When issues of aggression rise to the surface, it is merely the framework of a deeper inner wound.
But we become so caught up in the outer drama that we are oblivious to these serious inner wounds.
The reality is no matter how much attention we give to outer issues, nothing will change until we focus on inner-healing.
Effective conflict resolution is readily achievable when the focus of attention is driven towards creative solutions that resolve inner chaos.
