In the case of not embarrassing someone by making your pain noticeable: Can we assume that shouting will relieve some of the pain, and it is simply a human reaction to pain, rather than a deliberate attempt at embarrassing someone?
If so, would it be morally and spiritually excellent for the person who stepped on someone’s foot to immediately recognize that they should not feel embarrassed, since they had no intention of hurting someone else and they recognize that they are limited in their human ability to get up or squeeze through an aisle without never hurting someone else?
Wouldn’t it be morally and spiritually excellent for anyone in the room to immediately recognize that the yell could have easily originated from an accident, and that the person causing the accident should not feel embarrassed, since humans are limited in their ability to never cause any accidental pain?

In the case of the unpaid loan: Wouldn’t it be morally and spiritually excellent for both parties to pass each other on the street and to inherently understand that there must be a reason the loan wasn’t repaid. Wouldn’t it be more excellent to not even question why the loan hasn’t been repaid and to simply assume that there is a reason, and the person who hasn’t paid the loan would be more excellent in assuming that the person they passed understands that as well? At that point if the person who hasn’t repaid the loan wants to clarify why they haven’t, they can eliminate that uncertainty by explaining themselves, or they can assume the loaner is simply judging their trustworthiness.
