With the advent of electronic devices, privacy isn't what it was just a couple of decades ago. That of course has pros and cons, and that's another topic for another day.
It's lovely that there is still one area that remains private: what we are thinking at any moment. You never really know what kind of commentary another person is running, but you always know what you're thinking.
Regardless of what's going on in our outer world, we all are free to think what we want. We can go to prison for our spoken and written words and actions, but not for our thoughts. This applies to the way we view ourselves, other people, and situations.
When I'm walking down the street, I can think judgmental thoughts or kind thoughts about both myself and others. And since I'm not a mind reader, sometimes it is a fun exercise to guess what someone might be thinking at any given moment...
