Indeed, and where do we get our thoughts and impressions from? Society.
Are we clueless and powerless creatures unable to stop these impressions from affecting us? No.
How can we somehow alter and change these impressions??
By constantly being aware of the fact that ALL human beings are products of society and their surroundings, and maybe some people have been pushed around in the wrong circles and might not be as fortunate as others with the turns life has taken, or with the insights of life and society.
Are they bad people? No.
Are they evil people? No.
We all have our stories, and our own battles to fight. It could be wise to take that into consideration.
Every now and then.
