There is more of a range of thought going on. You have a small percentage that mock others and these people do this to EVERYONE! They would criticize Mother Teresa. Or with a beautiful model they would find the scar on the arm and say how she is a disgrace to being a model, she is not an example, it was probably self-inflicted. When none of that can be proven and everyone else sees just a person that is pretty that God made that way. You have many more people that love all poeple, and see the good in people, and there are ranges in that. I think the good outweighs the bad but we remember the bad.
If you were to write down at the end of the day, all the people who had treated you nicely and fairly and politely, they would always outweight those that don't. We sometimes take for granted those that treat us well, I think its part of our disorder because we are also depressed. We don't do it on purpose and bitterness creeps in almost like the depression can. But think of it like this. When you go the store, the bank, the post office, how do they all treat you in general? Do they do their job right? moreso than not they do I would say, over 50% of the time they do their job right and they treat you with respect. What about all the people on the road driving who did not crash into you? How often does that happen? Over 99% of the time? so over 99% percent of the time people drove well. Did you come out to your car from chores or work or shopping to it not being broken into? or keyed up? How often is that? More than 99% of the time? What about all the people you passed on the street. How many of them kept going and minded their own business? A few may have smiled. When at work, more people than not, treat you with respect and do their job, more than 50% of the time. So there is more of a range going on. You are not being completely aware of everything happening. You are being realistic about a small amount and thinking that is everyone when clearly it is not the case.
It is because of a few people we focus on that have consistently been harmful people that we forget to see that there is another 50% of peole at least that are giving us completely good signals or at the very least no trouble. It is like that everywhere. The trick is to concentrate on the good tasks, the good people mostly.
