I've come to the conclusion I've become numb to stimulus because I couldn't thrive or do anything else if I don't. It's either that or I'm just coping extremely well with the circumstances that I've been given.
It maybe just that I've become bitter and needed to release anger, but I feel that people are becoming a lot less like people and more like animals. Not in the sense that everyone is getting fangs and growing fur, but in general people seem to be acting more on their self serving instincts rather than learned virtue and moral. Maybe it's just a sign of the times or maybe it's just something I've noticed withing the people I've interacted with recently.
It seems to me that the people in question lack the ability to have introspect. I feel with that ability allows people to better evaluate themselves and make better choices about their lives. To know and better associate their own feelings is key to life management. Without these skills people's impulse go uncheacked and people have no way to step outside their own shoes and see someone else's life and circumstance. With the inability to show empathy or concern or see reason or purpose to do things that will better serve others rather than just themself. I feel that it's a learned attribute to fight that impulse and I feel that those who don't fight it are weak.
I'm not saying I follow this to a T nor am I trying to say I'm a saint. Though those who don't strive to this I feel are just becoming apart of the equation of the balance of things. They never learn to strive for better and constantly live in doubt of themselves and others.
getting off the high horse now and joining the angst that is LJ.
Basically, I need a vacation. A real one. I would love to go to California, but the only time I will be able to get any glimpse of a vacation would be during the one week I have in between Summer and Fall semester. However the governemnt has better plans for me, in fact that have graced me with Jury duty that week.
this is my moment of zen
