Preoccupations with that which is negative engenders dis-ease, being ill-at-ease, defensiveness, victims, resentment, anger, getting-even, revenge, etc. We do ill and are ill together when together we focus upon that which was negative in the past. Criticisms of imperfections in other people's affirmations --- do not lead us to do well and be well together. Being preoccupied with many mistakes, blunders, imperfections and injuries --- blinds us to what is true in each other's affirmations and descriptions. Trying to show/prove that we are better than others makes us all worse, ill, dis-eased, defensive, alienated, insecure, confused, dysfunctional, and repetitively mistaken. Focusing upon that which is negative in other people's lives --- does not augment that which is good in our lives together; our relationships. Showing that others are bad/evil does not prove that we are good and/or better. We cannot improve ourselves by disproving others' affirmations. Double negatives are usually downers --- which lead to more negatives, sacrifices, subtractions and losses. Responding negatively to other people's negativity --- usually augments negativity. Responding positively to other people's negativity --- opens the doors to reconciliation, conflict resolution, healing and recovery of: sight, hearing, listening, understanding, and dialogue.
