I’m like that with my sense of judgement. I’m inclined towards snap judgements that aren’t fair; but by admiting that and being aware of it, I force myself to analyize and look at the real patterns around me. Only way to grow.
A person I know once said that he believes that people are not really awful, but that at that moment whatever they’re doing makes the most sense to them. I’m paraphrasing horribly, but that’s the way I interpreted what he said and I do think there’s a lot of truth to it even though it’s not a perfect way to look at the world. I’m sure there are people out there who adore some of the people I absolutely loath (I don’t hate that— hate is too strong of an emotion for me to flippantly feel, and it’s hard for me to think of a person I have applied hate to) so they’re clearly fine people within the right circles. They’re just not the right people for me to have within my sphere of existence, so in that sense I guess the more accurate assessment would be something closer to, “This person is a terrible person if they were interacting with me.”
