The saying that birds of the same feather flock together means that we hang out with people who are like us and we attract individuals who mirror who we are inside us. 

Simply put, when you look at others, you will likely see what exists in you, like a mirror. 

Whether you see 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐲 , 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 , 𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐨𝐫 𝐟𝐞𝐚𝐫 in the soul of another, you are seeing the same that reside in your own soul reflected back at you those parts of yourself that you like and parts that you have disowned or do not like. 

While it is easy to judge or see others in a bad light, it is hard to accept and to realize that you possess those same traits.

Often, these habits, attitudes, and behaviors of others are closely linked to our unconscious and unresolved issues or sometimes called your 'shadows’.

We serve as mirrors for each other. 

Knowing yourself by looking at the people in our 'flock' can be a humbling experience.

Be loving and respectful to all around you, and let the goodness you see in others be your mirror.
