How do you feel as you examine the world around you? Not just your home or home nation, but the world. If you’re anything like me, it’s confusing.
I don’t understand how so many people come together and willingly and consistently treat others and the environment the way that they do. I’m not trying to vilify anyone or claim sainthood for myself. I’m pointing out the inconsistency of the human condition.
How is that so many people are trying to make the world a better place and rest are simply trying to survive? It boils down to that society has taught us that everyone has comparable feelings.
A Fine Line Between Guilt And Empathy
Everyone is trying to be a good person. Everyone feels guilt and empathy. This isn’t entirely true. I believe that everyone has feelings and reactions to events and people, but umbrella terms like guilt, sadness, or envy don’t cover the vast spread of subjective experience.
Society’s expectation of the basic development of these traits leads some people who develop slower or differently to learn to fake emotional similarities. These people never truly develop their emotional beings, they selectively grow and neglect what they need to be a part of society.
