Everyone thinks of himself as a good person. Are you really sure that you are a good person, and that some other person is a bad person? It often happens that when we notice that someone has a minor fault, we jump to the conclusion that he is a bad person, through and through. As for oneself, you notice that you have one small positive quality, and then conclude that you are a good person, completely without flaws. In fact, despite our habit of passing judgment on others, it’s really difficult to know for sure what others are really like. Perhaps the person you think so poorly of actually has some positive qualities that you simply don’t recognize.
