Why you like or dislike someone for no reasons…

The way you relate to people depends a lot on who you relate them with.

……….

When you see someone, you subconsciously also see someone else in him or her. And that shapes your connect…

For instance, you might dislike someone because you find glimpses of your dominating parent, your bully sibling, your gossiping aunt, a teacher who didn’t select you for drama, a friend who ditched you, a boss who stole your credit, a cousin you were always compared with; or even the imaginary baba quoted by elders in your childhood. The list is endless…

Similarly, you might like someone because you find glimpses of your caring parent, supportive sibling, an encouraging uncle, a teacher who complimented, a stranger who helped you selflessly, an ex you miss, a loved one you lost or ‘wanted but never had’; and even your favorite actor, or lovable character from novel or serial. Again, list has no end…

……….

Yes! The mind rewinds and reminds. Stay cognizant of this fact in relationships.
