Isn’t it we must see ourselves first with a reminder we once were in their shoes. With an approach to our neighbour who have done mistakes, can we show with care and hope without humiliating them and not letting them feel the guilt they already have.
Viewing other people and the world through the lens of a good eye endows us with a certain degree of optimism. From this perspective, every glass is half-full, not half-empty.

Imagine how positive and kind our daily encounters could be if we would adopt a good eye and condition ourselves to view others more generously.

Such a world would draw forth and activate the inherent kindness of our nature in a never-ending loop of mutual reinforcement.
