Do you feel you would be significantly different, maybe more successful, if you were raised surrounded by positivity rather than constant negativity and put downs? If you didn't have all sorts of negative baggage in your head, could you focus better? Be more relaxed and cheerful? Could you have more peaceful leisure time to think up ways to enjoy life better? I know some people where I have a strong feeling they had great positive parents, teachers, peers. They just seem like blue skies and cool breeze to be around. You never hear them say anything negative about anyone. You never hear them complain about anything. They just always seem cheerful and friendly. On the opposite end, you know people who are so hostile no matter what, no matter how insignificant something is, they want to bite your head off, chew it up, and shit it out, then tell everyone about it. You can't help think those toxic shits must have had the worst family upbringing and have nothing to look forward to each day. They seem to enjoy making others miserable like them. Reminds me of a Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends episode where Green Goblin tries to make everyone ugly and green like him. When I see people at the store and they have this disturbed serious look, I suspect something really bad happened to them to make them like that.
