You really measure others by your own world. At dusk, a poor farmer was sitting on the steps of his house.
A man next door thought to himself as he passed by. “This person seems very lazy. He probably sits on the steps like this all day.’
After a while, another man passed by. He thought to himself. “This man is a real Don Juan.
He just sits there looking at the girls who pass by.’
Finally, a woodcutter passed by. He thought to himself, “This man must be resting after working all day.”
Actually, we don’t know anything about the farmer sitting on the steps, but we can say something about the three men who passed by.
The first one was very lazy, the next one was a boy, and the last man was very hardworking.
When someone talks bad about you, they are telling you what they are thinking.
In order to protect his inner world, a person thinks about others in comparison with himself.
