If someone offers you a compliment by mistake, or gives you the benefit of the doubt, or lets you into traffic… my hunch is that you accept. You might not totally deserve it, but hey, they might see something in you that’s worthy.
On the other hand, when we’re unfairly blamed, harshly judged or cut off, well, that’s completely unacceptable. That’s enough to ruin a whole day. That’s reason for revenge or at the very least, the blowing off of steam.
Does that feel imbalanced?
