There is a defense mechanism for your own sanity to make you own self believe you are always the 'better' person in a scenario. It soothes your ego so that you can accept the situation or event where you, yourself come out looking like the 'good' guy. However, reality is often not the same. In fact some people absolutely believe to accept the truth under any circumstances, especially when they are wrong.
