How can you just not care? I care about everything and I love it. I do everything I do with passion, energy and enthusiasium really living life and trying to help others feel good. Generally the things I do like sport I will never do the best it and don't train as hard as I should but I do well at it, making rep. teams when I never should've, because do it with all my heart. I care about what everyone feels, thinks, wants to do I couldn't live without caring I would be an absolute mess

I dont think so. I was like that human. I used to feel like a stranger in a no name town.

But now I am tough, I dont give a **** about nobody.

I just dont care,

Thanks

How can you enjoy life though, if you have no emotions? Surely that just makes everyday dull and monotonous, with nothing to wake up to enjoy?

Once again I repeat, if you want to be happy in life , have no attachment in life you not willing to walk out 30 sec falt if you spot the heat around the corner.

Remember that and you will never feel any emotion, no unhappiness.
this is rather unfortunate, but it is unfortunatelly true.... people hurt... situations hurt.... you get emotions involved and there you find yourself all by yourself crushed into pieces drinking alone at night.... affects your school work, etc. .... then once you are over it you make a deal with yourself to never end up like that again..... well i just had one bad experience but is 'memorable' enough....

failures?....hmmmm i don't want to think of my past in those terms.... I typically put all I have in terms of effort into school and then hope for the best. Oh, also someone taught me to make informed decisions and NEVER look back no matter what the outcome..... not gonna help :grumpy:

Well I think decoz is just being honest and we should all respect that. It does seem that Ruthwaite thinks people who don't love everybody are in a mess, which is a very odd thing to say. If that's true, she can only be said to be loving everyone because she doesn't want to be in a mess herself. That is a negative way to live, living so that you aren't something or other.

Whereas we should try to live so that we are something. We shouldn't run away, we should run towards. I think the way to become happy is to stop running and escaping and ignoring and rather to look at things honestly and find a positive reason to live. And when you find that reason, you will likely be more happy than you have ever been.

This approach is also very beneficial because if you are living negatively, people can control you because they can imply or suggest that you are something you wish not to be. Many people are gullible in this way, like when a boyfriend says "if you love me, you will sleep with me".

If you define yourself in comparison to others, they will control you. This is a simple truth. If you find a reason to live for yourself, you become your own master.

I was just saying, you should love and care about something in your life, you don't have to care for everything just something
