In our lives, we come across people who are nasty, cruel and unkind. Sometimes it makes us wonder what makes them so aggressive. Human psychology and behaviour is often difficult to understand. Some people have the habit of hurting others out of sadistic pleasure while some people often end up hurting other people out of their experiences in life.

The conventional reason for humans doing terrible things to others is that they have also faced dehumanized behaviour. Most people blame their cruel and unkind behaviour on the failure of other people to appreciate humanity. Thus a lot of awful things arise from the fact that humans forget humanity and start treating others in a wrong way.

Depression is also one of the reasons why people are becoming cruel and unkind to others. Out of depression, people treat others in the wrong way without realising their bad behaviour. They often get angry and let go of relationships with their nasty behaviour. Also, people who are short-tempered end up being cruel and unkind. They fail to realise that anger is one of the greatest reasons of mean human behaviour.

Also when a person has gone through pain in their personal lives, they often do not treat other people properly. Such people are unable to get over their loss or pain in life and think that being unkind to others is the right way to deal. To put it in simple words, their rude behaviour is the result of misdirected pain.

While dealing with unkind or cruel people you must have the belief that that people are inherently good and they do bad things because of bad situations.
