degradation?

"A hurtful act is the transference to others
of the degradation that we bear in ourselves."
Simone Weil

well now, there's something to think about.
degradation - a decline to a lower quality, condition, or level

I can bear testimony to that one !! I have as a counsellor been the recipient of it and then there is the counter transference - what we all have to avoid in the giving back of it - hey it's all subconscious though so maybe that helps ! then again in a bad mood , nothing helps except prayer.
