How can I stop projecting my thoughts onto others?


- for example: looking for flaws in their appearances and how they are not as attractive as me, and wish they looked like me. When in actual fact every time I look in the mirror I dislike myself. I know I am just trying to look down on other people so I can perceive myself as more attractive. I feel guilty and negatively when I do it. Its a very old and hard habit to break. How do I stop? It causes me to hate others because I think when they are looking at me they are judging me- projection again. It's difficult enough admitting that it's my own fault so knowing how to fix it is impossible.
