Projecting instead of owning is a symptom of psychosis. Do you really want to be a psychopath? I don’t. So what can one do?
Please, start looking at your abuse of projections. Do you talk about people behind their backs? Do you judge other people without examining that very behavior in yourself? I know I do.
Do you speak for the collective whole with blanket “we” statements? Do you call yourself “you” in your own head? Yep, that’s what I’m talking about, that’s the externalizing and separating language, the projections – the symptom of psychosis. The first step is admitting you have a problem. I know I do. Even now that I’m conscious of it I still do it. I am teaching myself to take ownership of my projections and to take control of that voice in my head. I change the externalizing words like “you” and “we” into “I” and “me.”
My name is Aaron and I’m a recovering projectaholic. I’ve been changing my you’s and we’s into I’s and me’s now for over 2 years. My whole perspective of reality has shifted and I feel more confident, clear, and potent than ever. I want others to awaken their inner I’s and see the world from this new perspective. This simple switch in wording is the key to open up a new way of communicating, interacting, and living together. Try it for yourself and see, and then c’mon, let’s play!
I am I
