When you decide to UC, it's almost inevitable that you're going to encounter some level of negativity. Most of us know this all too well. As much as we hope to have this little bubble of safety and positivity around us, misery loves company, and bad feelings coming from others will often find their way to you despite your intentions.
If you're anything like me, this is annoying and petty at best, and harmful and outrageous at worst to you. But, the next time you are listening to voices that squawk and judge without listening back, feel sorry for them. The truth is, studies seem to show/indicate that people who are very angry are not able to process information the same way others do.
So, the fact of the matter is that you are probably way more logical than the people who try to treat you like you are illogical or stupid for your UC beliefs. The psychology most of us operate under is of the type that causes us to actually think, listen, process, and decide. There's a certain amount of fairness and objectivity in that. The angry people tend to just decide, decide, decide, having been convinced of something through mental shortcuts.
It makes it a little easier to cope with the stresses imposed upon us when you realize the source, because it's so hard to stay mad at people whom you should be feeling sorry for. I hope this helps ease some of the tension any of us are feeling during such sensitive times.
