Since I’ve been noticing my thoughts, I notice I think negative things about others.
For example, “that person is lazy”. I have evidence to think that based on things that they do/don’t do. A negative label based on a definition of what lazy is. But if we can choose to think whatever we want, why would we ever consciously think someone was lazy. If aware of our thoughts, wouldn’t we always choose to give someone the benefit of the doubt. Is there any place for negative labels. Despite what we may have been taught the definition of lazy (or any negative label) is.
