Double Standards

Why do people have double standards? One set of rules for some people and another set for other people.

I have seen this happening a lot recently. Maybe I am guilty of this too. I don't claim to be a saint. But many of us exhibit this trait.

For people we dislike, we find fault with things they do. If the same thing is done by someone we like, we don't have any problems.

We really see the world through filters. A good filter for things and people we like and a bad filter for things and people we don't.

That is why, I feel, perceptions are so important. In this world, what we actually are is not important. How we are perceived is more important. This is such a horrible reality. People judge you by how they perceive you rather than what you really are.
