Seeing the good in people doesn't mean that you have to play dumb. It simply means that you believe every person has some redeeming quality.

For example, your landlady might be kind of a pain but that doesn't mean that's just who she is. To her grandkids, she might be the best grandma in the world.

But seeing the good in people can be a little challenging, especially if you're not used to it. Below are some tips that might help push you in the right direction.

1) See The Good In You.

Be honest. You're not always such an angel. At times, you couldn't care less about the world and its problems. At times, you even have a tendency to be rude to others.

But you're not always selfish and you're hardly ever rude. In fact, you're actually quite charming and generous to your friends. So why can't other people be the same?

By looking at your own wonderful characteristics, you'll have an easier time spotting the same traits in other people.

2) Everyone Has Bad Days.

Have you ever had a bad day? If your answer is yes, then you know just how difficult dealing with everything else can be.

The next time someone is rude to you, think about his reasons for being disrespectful. Could it be that he had gotten into trouble at work? Perhaps he had received a bit of bad news.

Everyone has bad days. Understanding this helps you in seeing the good in people. Even the nicest of persons would probably slip up when he's bombarded with a boatload of problems.

3) Practice Positivity.

People who surround themselves with positivity have an easier time seeing the good in people. That's because they've already programmed such thoughts in their life. You too can follow in their footsteps.

Start with being grateful for your life. Be thankful that you have a family and friends who you can laugh and cry with. Be grateful that you have another opportunity to live a good life and that you have the ability to see the good in others.

Seeing the good in people is an admirable trait and something we should all aspire to have. Not only will it make your life more peaceful, it will also give you the power to influence how other people think and react.

History has taught us that violence and hatred only leads to more violence and hatred. Why don't we learn from our mistakes and try going about things the peaceful way this time?
