I’m no Different from You



I am human I’m known to lie, cheat or steal

Sometimes the lessons I’ve learned comes with a price

It leads me to escape this blame that I feel

There is nothing special about me

I’m no different from you

The things that scare us, are often the things we don’t see

Young or old

We bring this fight from inside us

To the people in our fold

When will we find a way

I confuse my vulnerability with weakness

And this is why we prey

And this is why we pray




Psychological projection, also known as blame shifting, is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses by denying their existence while attributing them to others

  • Bullying: A bully may project his/her own feelings of vulnerability onto the target(s) of the bullying activity.  Despite that a bully’s typically denigrating activities are aimed at the bully’s targets, the true source of such negativity is ultimately almost always found in the bully’s own sense of personal insecurity and/or vulnerability.  Such aggressive projections of displaced negative emotions can occur anywhere from the micro-level of interpersonal relationships, all the way up through to the macro-level of international politics, or even international armed conflict.
  • Blaming the victim: The victim of someone else’s accident or bad luck may be offered criticism, the theory being that the victim may be at fault for having attracted the other person’s hostility.
