Circumstances are always neutral?

Hi Brooke,
You mentioned in the January booklet that circumstances are always neutral. I can see that most of the time BUT (you knew that was coming!) let’s say someone abuses an animal. How can that be neutral? I understand that what I THINK about it could produce a feeling of neutral rather than sadness or anger. Maybe I’ve just answered my own question but I’d love for you to chime in on this because it’s a hard sell in a situation like this.
Really excited to be in SCS!!!
