People are like mirrors; they often reflect what you present. ~ Dr. Angi
This law more or less holds true for me especially when I present myself to others in a positive, encouraging, and helpful way with love, compassion, and kindness. Consider all your experiences both positive and negative. Do you find that this is often true for you, too? Do you find that when you are happy, others are happy, too? How about when you are enthusiastic? Or, when you are upset or grumpy?
Also, consider this, when you go into a situation where others are in a different emotional state than you, it is possible that you will be influenced by them. In this case, you are likely to reflect back to them what they gave you. This is fine and well, if it is a positive emotional state; however, if it is negative, guess what? You still have a choice. You can choose to be influenced by them and copy their emotional condition. Or, you can choose the high road and be positive. Choosing love, joy and kindness takes practice. At times, choosing love and kindness will be challenging, demanding, and maybe even tricky, but it is not impossible. Bear in mind, what you give is what you will probably receive; continue to be upbeat and encouraging and you will get more of the same.
