    Apathetic Toward Life And Death.

    This goes pretty far back, to even my childhood, but I've never quite been able to feel anything toward the death of people, or the birth of new ones. I'm overall apathetic to most things, but nothing like those two. 2001, I was going to class one day and felt like something was...

    Apathy

    I'm not sure how many people are apathetic by the definition as such that "Apathy being a state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation and passion." I don't feel for anything that doesn't exactly and immediately affect me and even...

    Choice Is Her's

    I'm certainly not sympathetic, empathetic, amused or happy. When I was told that a kid who has been part of my life for many years, was arrested and charged with a felony, my reaction surprised all. I have been very honest with all of them about my history and how I feel about...

    Jaded With Life

    I am a male nearing my 40's and I have very little to inspire me. Ever since I was young there has always been this thought train speeding at me. The train has all the fears I tried to ignore when I was younger. Now I can not seem to get away from the mundane redundancy of life...

    Systemic Apathy

    I appear to have developed an intense level of apathy. Within the last year or so, I have stopped caring about virtually everything. Given, I didn't care a whole lot to start. I used to be very fastidious and self-conscious about my appearance and presentation (even though this...

    Under A Fluffy Cloud Of Nothingness

    Apathy has kept me safe and comfortable like a cold blanket my whole life. Sometimes I think that I just don't have the capacity to feel emotions, but in reality it is that I just never learned how. I shut myself down to survive a rough childhood, I never learned a whole set of...

    I think I'm starting to grow apathetic.

    The excitement in my life is fading away and I can feel it fade away. Maybe because my life is just boring. Yes, that's it. Maybe I should just kill myself. Not because I'm sad or anything but because life simply isn't worth living. I have to work to live. I have to learn to...

    I Don't Care That I Don't Care.

    I don't think there's a problem with being apathetic... in fact, I believe the opposite is true. It is my belief that many of the problems with the world are caused by those who try to make it better... those who have passion, ambition. I'd rather not contribute. Not because I...
