In recent days, I have observed all levels of irony in my life and life of those around me. What I believe is that very few people have awareness of what is really happening to them. Many people have lamented to me that they have no friends and are rejected by others. They lack the awareness that their behaviors are driving others away. In fact, it is this fear of rejection by others that caused them to become clingy, distant, or even sabotaging their potential friendships causing others to find them unlikeable.
Another recent situation is just such a reminder. A young man was trying to make a good impression during an interview with me. He was so focused on himself and his efforts to get this job that he came across self-centered and inconsiderate, while unaware of his behaviors. His fear of not getting the job resulted in him actually not getting this job. Isn’t that just so ironic?
Many times, I have observed this type of irony as people are generally unaware of their thoughts and behaviors, but instead accuse others of hurting or rejecting them. The reality is that they are causing these outcomes without even realizing it. We attract what we fear. Under the law of attraction, we attract what we think. If we think about fear, we will attract the very outcome we fear.
When we are fearful about something, we likely will behave in certain ways to counter this fear and inevitably, we cause the very outcome we fear. If we become aware of our fears and the behaviors resulting from these fears, we can change the course and outcomes in our lives. (Copyright 2017 Awakening Journey with all rights reserved)
