Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take to improve your life today.
"Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves."
— Carl Jung
When something irritates you about someone else, it's usually a sign pointing back at you.
When you can't let it go, it's time to look in the mirror and ask why you're so captured by the frustration.
Usually it's something deeper going on within yourself that is worth addressing.
Where have you let someone else bother you? Is it possible that you're the one with the issue?
Creator Fact 👤
Carl Jung was a highly influential Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology.
Jung is credited with inventing the terms "Introverted" and "Extrovert" in his book Psychological Types. He argued that these two words served as a model for how individuals lost or gained energy in daily life.
He also made it clear that no one can be all introvert or all extrovert — but rather that we are all on spectrum of how energy levels shift. “There is no such thing as a pure introvert or extrovert. Such a person would be in the lunatic asylum.”
