    I Wonder Why Some Take Joy In Others Suffering....

    Strange

    I wonder why some people are entertained by the shortcomings of others.  I think it's insecurity.  They are unsatisfied with their lives in some way.  Though not the way that they laugh at the other person about.  That's not THEIR problem and since it's not it...

    I Seriously Do Not Understand.

    I often think the violence that is shown in TV is exaggerated. I don't find spiteful "jokes" funny. I can't watch when someone crashes when skating and breaks bones or twists limbs. It feels physically bad in my body. Mental violence is the same. I don't...

    What Happened to Respect?

    There are different ways of making people suffer. Sometimes it is a direct assault, where you aim comments and snide remarks at them. Sometimes you undermine someone's sense of self, not by insulting them, but by doing those little things that don't matter one at a time, but when...

    Why?

    Why do others get their thrills from other's suffering? Why are there mean people in the world? Why can't others take those who are different and accept us as we are? Why is there so much selfishness? Why do some people think they are better than everyone else? Please tell me...
