How many of you people here see the world bitterly and feel like all the majority cares about is what commodity they can get from you?

I'm going to guess its most of you. And we're just as bad as those sorts of people from time to time as well.

But how do you cope with being untrusting of other people's intentions? What do you do to accept and re-evaluate your expectations?

I saw where your avatar is from the other day. the fact that video has 25m views makes me more distrustful of human nature than anything else

I think people are by and large good.

yeah

i also don't trust people and have trouble making close friends because a kid i thought was my best friend ****ed me over pretty bad.

i'm still very nice to people even when i don't trust/like them. i guess i'm just a nice guy.

I have no problems with that. I simply do the same.

Not really that cynical though.

i certainly feel that people only talk to me because they want something, usually help with work. Its why i barely talk to people at uni anymore

its kind of shit but when every conversation turns to "so what did you do for X in the assignment? can i have a look?" after 30 seconds, it gets kind of pointless

:/

I know exactly how that feels. I get so lonely because all people want to talk to me about is any assignment that is due in the next few days. While they seem like fairly nice people to one another. all anyone talks to me about is what the score is.

Cynicism is great! I find that being right most of the time is a rewarding thing, although I'm right about kind of depressing stuff...



Still right.

By accepting the fact that there is nothing I can really do except try to be a good person?


I think that if people were just nice to everybody and had some respect then most of the major problems in the world wouldn't even exist.

its lonely at the top

jk, i wish i was at the top, the sad thing is, is that im not even the best in the class... and for the record i tell them to fvck off 100% of the time when they ask for answers/shit unless its for genuine help, not just lets see your work. one guy got all pissy and hasn't spoken to me since, despite being in all of my lectures lol

Yeah. Of course, I'm a lot more helpful towards people who are nice, and have helped me in the past. There's this one student on my course who isn't massively bright, but he is such a polite and courteous person to everybody that I cannot help but help him. I even give him tips about assignments that I've found when he didn't necessarily ask for them. I think if I'm going to have a friend come out of this course, it would probably be him. But he dropped out. Its a shame, I would've liked to have seen him do well.

TBH I don't know, I just do.


Why try to change the world? You're only here for a short time, just do what you can to enjoy it and don't make it shitty for others. That's my outlook, anyway.

Its really at this point that when I try to find an answer, I hit a brick wall. Any method of 'dealing with it' that I've ever heard leads to a statement that just raises more questions.

I struggle a huge amount with tolerating the bullshit this world has to offer, even if I know there's nothing I can do about it. If anything, knowing that there's nothing I can do just cripples me even further. I'm an idealistic person and I don't know how to deal with that, because there's no real 'method' of dealing with it as far as I can tell. According to everybody I've asked, it just 'happens', whatever that means.

To be emotionally crippled. To feel utterly worthless and insignificant, because nothing I will ever be or do will help the problem. And I cannot get out of hating that.

Look mate, read some Voltaire and probably some Rousseau. While both have strong points, just like life, it's mostly made of compromises.....but in the end, everyone individually amounts to nothing in this world.
People you see driving in the driveway feels they have a duty and maybe you too, but what are you to them? I started to ignore the ignorance of this world and focused on myself, because I believe that it would give internal happiness and the ultimate goal in life is happiness in my opinion. I also think that people serve the world because the world's happiness is their own internal happiness, not because they genuinely just want everyone else to be happy...or maybe other's happiness is their internal happiness, ahh what a paradox.

Isn't happiness meant to be a process though?
