Eckhart Tolle said, "Anything that you resent and strongly react to in another is also in you."
I invite us to consider that this is absolute. The variables are the facets of the behavior we embody and the degrees to which we embody the behavior, i.e. where we exceed our personal threshold to reveal our inclination to express aspects of the behavior to which we are reacting.
The opportunity is to recognize that our reactions are symptoms of our current condition. The reaction occurs when we locate and touch an open wound. The locating is a function of the Law of Attraction, the attraction and alignment of like energies. Therefore, if I react to forms of bullying and manipulation, I am inclined or am susceptible to bully and/or to manipulate others. It's just a matter of threshold, method and extent to which I display the behavior or allow the reaction to run me. The good news is that the behavior or the reaction is a symptom that reveals a place to heal. By realizing this, we may choose to allow the reaction to take over or not.
In my case, for example, the behaviors of bullying and manipulating are often attributable to feeling unworthy or powerless, which are places to heal. Therefore, when I find myself bullying or manipulating someone, I can stop and remember that I am lovable and worthy;
Thank you for the opportunity to look and remember. ♥
