We can view the manner in which people treat us in many different ways. Why choose a negative approach, when you can choose a positive one?
For example, if your parents treat you in a manner you consider suitable for someone younger than you, you might be inclined tell yourself "It's awful how they treat me like a baby." But you can also view this as a manifestation of your parents' love and concern for you.
