We do not see other people but our own reflection in them.
Kabbalistic sources describe this phenomenon of our perception extensively, that we do not see others, but we see them in our perception, and what we see as their positive or negative traits or behaviors depends on our own habits, mentality and upbringing.
We do not perceive other people in and of themselves. Rather, we perceive them as correlations of themselves and ourselves.
The world is a reflection of your desire. Everything you see is your desire outside of you.
