Several years ago while taking a course in spiritual direction the instructor had us think about a person(s) we judged to be of lesser character than ourselves.
For me that was an easy if not a obvious choice. That person was Bill Clinton. Yes old “slick” Willy the former President of the United States.
For some reason I have always despised this guy. I judge him to be of weak character and a fraud.
When we completed the exercise I was feeling confident I had nailed this little test.
Then, to my horror, the instructor told us that all the things we found wrong with this person are the things we most fear about ourselves.
Wow- that hit me and was cause for much reflection.
Perhaps you may want to look at the person you judge most harshly and the reasons for your dislike.
Could this be your shadow self?
