Are People Fundamentally Good Or Bad In General?

When we analyse our life in a different perspective we can find that there are various types of people with difference in behaviour attitude and approach and different ways of thinking. Some people are good, some not and some possess the quality of both. When we know someone we try to understand their lives, thought process, feelings, traumas, etc. During this process, we come to know the dynamics of human beings and know-how good or bad they are.

The like or dislike for humans sometimes comes out of a relationship. When we think of our parents, we know that no one can be a better person for us than them. But if someone asks you who is equally good as your parents, you will find it hard to answer. So relationships determine who is good or bad to you.

But when we see people from a general perspective, we find that people are a mix of good and bad. Some people are so kind to you, that no one can match their goodness. Similarly, some people with their mean attitude will hurt you. So there is always a mixture of every type of person in life. Sometimes the determination of good or bad is done based on our expectations. People meeting our expectations will be considered good and those who do not will fall in the bad category. That is how human behaviour works.

Plain truth is that you will find people will win your hearts and sometimes you will meet people who have all the destructive capacities. So the world has every kind of human being. Therefore, it is important that in life you are surrounded by people with constructive capacities.
