What is projecting?
Projecting is when another person tells you, who you are, what you are thinking, and what you are feeling. And it’s done to stop, block, or harm you.
The person is pushing their words, their thoughts, their feelings on you and trying to control you and pin you down. It can be like they are throwing or vomiting their mess on you to stick on you and control you.
Watch for words… You are…
You may hear:
You are a liar. You stop, pause and think, no I am not.
You are a gossiper. You stop, pause and think, no I am not. I was raised with that principle and no I am not.
You are an angry person. Well, maybe once up a time, but no more. Always own any sin you can. But do not let them unload their junk on to you. Do not allow it to stick to you.
You’re not a Christian. Really, yes, I am!
You are not a good (wife, mom, and employee). WOW, yes, I am.
You are not a people person. Really, I like people. I disagree. I am.
You are not kind. Really, I believe I am. Maybe at times I can be rough around the edges.
You should not feel sad. But you just lost a pet.
You should not feel that way… and your mad. Your spouse is talking and flirting with another woman.
Really, think again.
Just because someone says something about you to your face, does not mean it is true.
So when a person attacks you with projecting their garbage on you. Or as I tell women they puke their vomit all over you. Their bag of sins.
See if any of that is true about you and if not, let it fall to the ground.
If you are living with someone that is projecting their insides on to you, may I recommend you get free from their words?
