What Is Projection? 

Projection is the psychological term for placing your own faults, flaws,  indiscretions and/or other negative perception issues unfairly onto another person and then condemning them for displaying that behavior…behavior which is actually YOUR negative behavior.

For example, people who are unfaithful in their relationship(s) will often times will actually accuse their partner(s) of cheating on THEM as a way to project their guilt and shame into someone else by shifting the focus off of they themselves, no matter how ridiculous and unfounded their claims may be.

Have you ever dealt with any types of projection in your relationships?  Were you the one projecting your flaws onto another or was someone else projecting onto you?  How did you deal with the relationship when you found yourself in that kind of projection situation?
