Why We Attract Others

Do you ever wonder why you attract people full of drama, and those who lie, cheat, and hurt us? The answer is very simple. We attract them because we also share a common emotional injury as them.

Let me explain. We may be attracted to liars, cheaters, and philanders because this has occurred in our past with a parent, or another person very close to us. As a result of this past injury, we attract others into our lives who remind us of our past and feel familiar to us.

For me, it was my father who cheated on my mother, lied to us about his philandering, and also sexually and physically abused me. As a result of this past injury, I attracted many others with similar traits and behaviors.

Because I never recognize my own emotional injuries, I continue to blame others for hurting me. When I finally realized that this emotional injury was within me, and began zealously to heal myself, I no longer attract those with these negative traits and behaviors.

It is this self realization that we are powerful, since we hold the key in changing our lives. When we take responsibility for our own hurts and injuries, then we will attract different people into our lives and experience a more positive and healthy life.
