What's your blind spot? Strange question since the name implies you don't see it, right? A blind spot is something that regularly trips you up, or triggers an emotional reaction, yet you just keep doing it and feeling the same way. (Also know as the definition of insanity.)
A blind spot is something that we like to think is someone else's flaw or something someone else is doing (or not doing) that "makes" us mad, sad, irritated, frustrated, etc. However, if it weren't something we're blind to, we'd see that it is OUR problem or issue, not something someone else is doing "to" us.
A blind spot is hard to, well, spot, because we're adept at hiding it from ourselves. A helpful clue is paying attention to that "one thing" that always gets under your skin. For instance, if you frequently feel unappreciated by your partner despite all you do for them, perhaps a closer look at codependency would be helpful. Yikes! I can already hear the rebuffs to that implication — yet another signal to look at YOUR part of the equation.
The more you resist the possibility that it's up to you to resolve your negative feelings or reactions, the more useful it will be for you to dig deeper.
It's up to you to illuminate your blind spots and to try something different. The same old reactions will keep giving you the same old outcomes. So, how badly do you want change in your life?
