Here’s a lesson I learned pretty early on in life. It’s not earth-shattering, but it can help give you a heads up on what people are capable of. Think of it like “for every action there is a reaction,” except it’s applied to human behavior.
For every quality displayed by any person, understand that they are capable of the opposite behavior manifested to the same degree.
For example, if someone is really nice, that means they are also capable of being very mean. The more extreme any given character trait, the more extreme will be it’s opposite.
Now this doesn’t mean that these opposite traits are actually manifested – it just means they are potentials, waiting for the right signal to wake up.
Be careful out there.
