A STRANGE THING HAPPENS ON THE STREETS OF LIFE. IN A LIFE LIKE YOURS, IN A HOUSE LIKE YOURS, ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE, TO PERSONS YOU LOVE AND DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO HURT BUT YOU DID NEVERTHELESS.
It happens like this: Something or someone agitates you, anger swells up inside you and your whole being needs to vent. Just then, someone you love comes in and asked: Are you alright? But somehow the question sets you off and you vent your whole frustration and anger due to an agitation
(which has nothing to do with the “are you alright? question) upon that person in an action called “Transference”.
There is a saying that is so true! “You always hurt the one your love”. There is no magic cure for the kind of – a fit of words often said in a “Transference”. To say I am sorry helps, but the transference spew sometimes reveals a hostile side of you, the kind that leaves dents in the mind of the one you love.
Transference can kill love. Sometimes persons mistreated at work, school, or in a past time, live a grudge that they pass on as anger against completely innocent persons. The first level of escape from this disease of transference is the realization of this dreadful conduct. More divorces happen because of “Transference” than would ever be guessed. More families and friendships break up due to “Transference” than I have time or space to describe.
Get a grip on this. Also, don’t let intoxication bend your mind into another reason for “transference”. Bare down on this and demand yourself to take control of your actions, lest one day, if not healed may steal away your greatest love.
