I am angry when I see that my daughter is like me

I am angry when I see that my daughter is like me.

Your problem is not that your daughter resembles you but that you hate yourself. Your hatred for your daughter is not for her but for yourself. If you loved yourself, the fact that your daughter resembles you would make you happy since you can be near someone who appeals to you. The solution to your question is to love yourself.

In order to love yourself, you ought to above all know what you are. You also should know that what you have hated so far is not yourself but the illusions of you. You have been deluded by the illusion of you because you don’t know what you are.

Ask yourself what you are when your body is not you and you will realise that the essence of your being is much greater and holier than you can imagine. Keeping this question is Zen meditation, which will help you mitigate your hatred and turn it into love for yourself even before finding the answer.
