We will rotate the same emotional reactions with different people until we can see that it is not the person we are reacting to, it is the emotional pain that we carry from the initial wound.
The replay of our anger, jealousy, hate and distrust are all emotions that resurface with different people because they stem from a wound in our past that was never healed. We place blame on people and situations for our feelings and outbursts of negative emotions but in truth, we can only place blame on our self, for our uncontrolled reactions that stem from our old unhealed wounds.
We cannot change what happened in the past but the past holds the key to why we react negatively … In looking at what caused our initial emotional pain we can see that it is the” feeling” from our old pain that continues to surface and not the initial situation or person in a new form.
If you dissect that old feeling to find the cause, you can then use that feeling as your guide to know if the feeling is connected to the current situation or the past. It is through that awareness that an old wound can truly heal and a new wound from an old feeling can be prevented, because your view of the now is clear.
