All you see is you, not even your reflection of you, or projection,
Other people are you yourself
Best when met in a purest Here and Now state,
if not they are still you but might happen that they are past, future, outdated etc. version of you.
And that creates some disonanses. Wanting it or not you have to cope with it. You are in the right and in power to decide, create and also change. PS Once you deal with ego talking about you will be uplifting you yourself and others around you, remember that they are you, hearing something about ourselves is always somehow positive.
