Thought for the day

It occurred to me that people seem to believe bad news easier than good news.

For example: When you’re in a relationship with someone, sometimes you can’t quite believe that someone loves you, even though they say it hundreds of times before you start believing them.

At the same time, we accept the bad news quite readily when someone says they don’t love you anymore and break up with you.

Another example: When someone mentions some good news, you may answer with “Really?!” when you can’t quite believe it because it sounds too good to be true. Yet when someone gives you bad news, you accept it and move swiftly on.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think this sounds reasonable?
