Subconscious memory affects behavior. People don’t always know why they do some of the things they do. We have memories buried deep within us that our conscious mind has forgotten about. The brain remembers everything. Even the things we don’t consciously notice happening to us.
If you find someone acting in a peculiar way, remember that they might not realize they’re doing it. Even if you point it out to them, they might not see it. All the more reason to be merciful. In other words, be patient with other people’s faults.
Of course, you have your own faults too which may make it difficult for you to be merciful, but do your best.
