We are not doing ourselves justice when we reproach ourselves for feeling a certain way. Moral evaluation—whether something is good or bad—presupposes choice. We may not like the law of gravity, but the law in and of itself is neither good nor bad—it simply is; we may not like feeling the need for approval, but the feeling itself is neither good nor bad—it simply is.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.
~ Henry Ford
Whenever you think something bad about someone else, never say it. Whenever you think something great about someone else, always say it.
from Sean Johnson’s ‘Eight Life Hacks’
