Nothing pisses me off more than people who don’t try to see both sides of the story before casting their judgement and condemning someone to hell for whatever big or little thing they did wrong.
I’m not perfect. I don’t always give everyone the benefit of the doubt but I sure WANT to know both sides, to at least know what lead to something happening. It might be a crime, murder, infidelity, drink drive, drugs, shoplifting, abandonment – anything.
Yes there are shitty people around but things are never as simple as guilty until proven innocent. We are all products of our upbringings, of our environments, of our friend circles, of our work, of circumstance. Sometimes it really is just a luck of the draw. What someone has done may be wrong. It might deserve a life sentence in jail, it might have required better judgement and a less selfish knee jerk reaction, but there are still two sides to every story.
So hear it and stop being the pack animal that sinks to that level. If you can’t say anything constructive, don’t say anything at all.
