    I'm going to have to go with GunZ and say infinite spaces. Spent way too much time Saturday just staring at the stars.

    Yeah it's so hard to accept people do bad things without any reasons, get mad without a reasonable explanation..

    I've suffered from bullies myself, atleast they're not the type of bullies who would flush you in the toilet but still really bad in so many ways..
    I've always wondered to myself "how can people become so bad and do bad things without any reason?"

    I do know there are more bad people around the world and I do know that I'm really lucky compared to them but it's still hard to accept that this is the reality that we see..

    Also to the other people theory isn't reality yet, so your free to not accept it...

    The fact that most of the time, we are not the people who pay the biggest price for our irresponsibility.

    how truly self-absorbed everyone (including me) is.

    have you ever stopped to think before you grouched at that person that clipped your shoulder when you were walking on the pavement? ever wonder why they were there? where they came from. why the might have not been looking where they were going?

    i try my hardest to constantly see others point of view,(don't always suceeded) but if i explain this to others, they think i'm creepy. sheesh.

    I wonder why is it that when I make a thread everyone is always agreeing to each other, And I was expecting some debates in this type of topic. OTL

    The proper response is something like "Watch it, asshat."

    Welcome to materialistic society, we have a wealth of apathy.

When people derive a lot of pleasure from buying things and believe that acquiring material possessions are important life goals, they tend to have lower life satisfaction scores. Materialism also positively correlates with more serious psychological issues such as depression, narcissism and paranoia. Ironically, a person's pursuit of happiness through the "American Dream" will make them unhappier.

    Rabbits is right! So is Del though. It is what it is. I mean...I think its in one's nature to be "self absorbed" (I can not & will not elaborate because I'm too busy being delicious!). Its really difficult to see one's self juxtaposed everything else without being in the very least a little self absorbed. But the materialistic world that many of us liven today makes it even easier to become self absorbed. I go out of my way to speak to everyone I meet on the street. Just a friendly hello, nothing more. But I know they probably won't speak back so I greet them with a hello & an angry scowl simultaneously. Its all f'ed up. Am I self absorbed for thinking I should extend good will to the fellow passerby Or is it really my perception that people aren't as kind as I am that makes me scowl?

    Either way it bums me out...
