Do good people have bad thoughts about others?



Dec 10, 2018
I'm very liberal, I try and treat people as I'd expect to be treated myself but I still occasionally get bad or prejudicial thoughts about people based on appearance etc. They occasionally just flash up in my mind and I have to tell myself that's a horrible thing to think. I wonder sometimes if I'm a bad person or if everyone sometimes has bad thoughts about others. Is a good person someone who might occasionally have the same prejudices, bad thoughts etc but knows the difference between right and wrong?


of course, no one is perfect and at times thinking negatively about someone isn't a bad thing, I get a gut instinct on who I think I will get along with and who I know I probably won't
