Like I'm doing a problem right now which is too long to copy or paste here, its basically a circuit where there are 3 batteries in parallel, and in one of them, current is passing through the battery from the positive to the negative terminal (from high to low potential)..now I know that the potential difference is negative through this particular battery, but the thing I don't understand is why at this battery, it is at a higher potential than the other batteries whose currents flow from low to high potential...?? I don't know if I provided sufficient detail for you guys to understand it...

basically i don't know what exactly a negative potential difference means...
