Why are people so STOOPID?


You ever just watch someone slowly destroy themselves, crashing and burning, like being in a helicopter and watching a freight train heading towards a collapsed bridge? There's nothing you can do, so you just kind of shake your head, but you can't look away? Yeah, I've been doing that for a while with someone. It's funny but sad to watch their heartfelt (but untrue) cries of, "No! No! I've changed! I've learned from my mistakes!", all the while talking nonsensically of love and light and happiness and renewal and hope and change and OMG IT'S ALL BULLSHIT! You have NOT changed, you are STILL doing the same things that fuck you up and sabotage yourself, and you stick your fingers in your ears and REFUSE to hear anything other than your sycophantic friends saying, "Oh, that's so great! Things will work out! Good luck!" IT WON'T WORK OUT. You're setting yourself up for the same failure you've set yourself up for time and time again, and when it inevitably happens you'll cry and wonder why the universe is so against you. Truth be told, the universe couldn't give two shits about you - YOU'RE DOING THIS TO YOURSELF YOU FUCKING MORON.

Gives. Me. AGITA.

(By the way, if you think this is about you, it probably isn't, 'cause I have no problem telling you the truth to your face - YOU'RE FUCKED UP! :P Welcome to the club!)

If it's who I think you are talking about, there was so much crazy I just had to stop listening a couple years ago.

It's not, but I'm curious as to which specific crazy you're referring to. :)

Why yes, I have had to watch someone destroy themselves through bad choices. Watched two of them be buried.

In the bad times, you wonder "Is there something more I could have done?" and my answer still comes to "not that I know of."

My hypothesis is that you simply care too much. There are a few people I know that fit the mold of self-destruction that you describe. Where I initially cared about their fate, at some point I simply "stop caring" because of the excessive effort involved. Which is funny, because these people assume it means that I've suddenly become "nicer" and non-judgemental, but in fact it's that I would now have a hard time drumming up tears if they found these people dead in a dumpster somewhere. I've stopped judging because I've already reached a verdict, and they are quite guilty.

The virtue of apathy, I've learned, is vastly under-rated. :)

It's true - emotional investment is awfully draining, but I actually still like this person, so it's hard for me to stop caring. Probably not reading their LJ would help.

And here I thought you were talking about the entire Democratic party. :P

Heh, not far off the mark.

Wind up the little machine and it sets itself on fire. Yeah. Caring about people is just too exhausting when they do things like this. Detach, detach.
