sympathy

I’m still feeling zero sympathy for the growing number of ManChildTrump voters who are realizing they were fooled.

Those who wanted ObamaCare killed while they had coverage under the Affordable Care Act. No sympathy.

Caitlyn Jenner, who knew the people with whom Trump aligns himself want to dissolve same-sex marriage and eliminate protections for transgender people. No sympathy.

Immigrants who came here, then voted to keep refugees out…even those from the same country they escaped…then cry because their family members can’t enter the US. No sympathy.

People who claim to care about their children’s education…or the air they breathe…or the water they drink, only to see the unqualified people Trump appointed to his cabinet. No sympathy.

And, Middle Class taxpayers? Here’s a prediction. When Trump releases his tax plan, you’ll discover you’re paying higher taxes so the rich/corporations can stack up a few more pennies on their counting tables. No sympathy!

INTP Sympathy

Stereotyped INTP showing sympathy: The emotional attachment you have to that (subject) is highly illogical. Please refrain from showing any emotion around me again.

How it actually happened:

XXXX: So my dog died a week ago.

INTP: ….oh.

XXXX: Yeah it’s been really hard on me.

INTP: *Nervously shuffles feet* Mmhmm

XXXX: He was the cutest little thing.

INTP: *Shuffles harder*

XXXX: I miss him so much!

INTP: *Spontaneously learns to tap dance*

Never followed this couple, but this gif always breaks my heart. Because you watch it all unfold in heartbreaking detail…
The camera’s on them, she goes to look at him, expecting-anticipating his eyes will turn to find her, like she’s turning to find him. Then the realization hits, he’s completely preoccupied, and it’s not with her. And you see it wash over her face… she was thinking of him, but he wasn’t thinking of her.
I think a lot of girls can relate to how shitty that moment feels.

Empathy VS. Sympathy

In 1909, the psychologist Edward Titchener translated the German Einfühlung (‘feeling into’) into English as ‘empathy’. Empathy can be defined as a person’s ability to recognize and share the emotions of another person, fictional character, or sentient being. It involves, first, seeing someone else’s situation from his perspective, and, second, sharing his emotions, including, if any, his distress.

This world. This world is fucked up.

Hi,  for those of you who don’t know me, which is almost everyone who will ever read this, I’m Jasmine. I’m a 17 year old teenage girl who, today, woke up to the news that her country was attacked, twice. I live in the United States, it’s been almost a year since I’ve moved here, I was born here but moved away when I was young. I’m Iranian, no I wasn’t born there or raised in the country but that is my nationality, it’s what identify with. My parents were both born and raised in Iran, so those culture and traditions are very important to our family. We visit Iran multiple times a year, we owned a house in Tehran, we have loved ones all around the country and memories in every corner. So, imagine the panic, devastation and angry that went through me when I was made aware of this attack. 

Unfortunately, attacks have become common, normal almost. Within the last month both Manchester and London were attacked, and now, Tehran. The difference is, EVERYONE knew of the other attacks, from my friends texting me if I had heard of what happened, to politicians releasing statements, celebrities tweeting and posting about it, it was everywhere, as it should be. I want to make one thing clear before I continue, I believe and support the things I previously mentioned, I myself participated in bringing awareness to those tragic events and prayed for all those harmed and effected.    

I saw ONE post about the Tehran attack, one. It was a snapchat post from an Iranian friend of mine. That is the only post I saw about the event. From all these social media outlets and the thousands of people in which I follow and see, I only saw ONE post. The first thing I did was, got out of bed and went to ask my mum if everyone, from the hundreds of people we know and love in Iran, were okay. When these attacks happened in other countries, everyone was talking about it, my feed on every single social media was filled with post and statements of the unfortunate events. For the first time, I had to search up the event, it’s not trending, people aren’t talking about it, it’s not head lining news like the rest were, it’s just not important. 

Now, Iran is not the only country that has been neglected, I have spoken about this with people before, there are certain countries that others just don’t give a damn about. Places like Turkey which has been attacked multiple times, Syria which is in an internal war and only at times do we shed light on the severity of the issue. I went online to educate myself on what’s going on in more depth, the things I found, absolutely disgusting. People didn’t care, some were happy and said that Iran deserved it, one person went as far as to say “Couldn’t care less if they were all blown up. Terrorist attacking terrorist. I’ll sit back with my popcorn and laugh all the time”, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. THIS IS SOCIETY. Our world has turned in to a pathetic, disgusting, divided nation, that only unites when it looks good. 

I’ve stood by and prayed for every country that has been attacked, our country doesn’t get that same love. My friends texted me after Manchester saying, “did you hear what happened?”. Today, only one friend had asked me if I had heard and if everyone I knew was okay, only one. People who know where I am from, who have seen my post about the attack haven’t shown support, haven’t asked if anything happened, if those I love are okay, if any human being is okay. 

I don’t blame everyone for not being aware, it is the medias duty to raise equal awareness. I’m not mad anymore, I’m disappointed in humanity, for multiple reasons, from the attackers who are regularly doing this, to people who are neglecting a country in their time of need. 

If you took nothing from everything I have said today, take this. A country is not it’s government, a country is not it’s politics, a country is not it’s mistakes. A country is it’s culture, it’s traditions, the people, the history, the sights, the generations of life and the spirit of it’s soul. 

2 attacks, one day, 12 killed, around 40 injured and almost zero awareness. 

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, March 14, 1909

This was basically doctor Charles Loomis Dana’s rebuttal to anyone opposed to abuse, vivisection, or other experimentation on animals - if you feel sympathy for animals you’re “dippy”! 

Feel bad when you see a badly treated dray horse being whipped on the street? You’re dippy! A skin and bones three legged stray dog makes you sad? Dippy! Sick cat makes your heart ache? Definitely dippy! He claimed that if you let these things affect you then the next thing you knew you’d be “weeping bitter tears over a wilted flower which has been snatched from it’s parent bush” and unable to feel compassion for fellow humans.
