Projection - A Poem
Last night I caught myself projecting.
I pushed my insecurities onto someone I love.
What unwanted behavior has my ego been protecting?
I was angry and irritated, myself I was not proud of.
For me, this is an opportunity for awareness and understanding.
To explore the behavior patterns I need to get rid of.
No more avoidance; I must spend time self-reflecting.
I must look within myself to once and for all get a hold of.
It's not easy to admit to what I was avoiding.
My hurtful actions I was in denial of.
As I played back past events, it all started connecting.
The pattern repeated over and over, which now I am tired of.
Awareness is the first step to my self-correcting.
Acceptance of my behavior will help me rise above.
I apologize and vow to take action so I stop projecting.
The people I love deserve my best, and my best, they will love!
P.S It was difficult to write this poem and even harder to share it but it has to be done for me to overcome this inner challenge. Let me know if it resonates with you. 💜
Good reflection, Rizwan!
