    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...

    Others

    I care about other people. I can't understand people being mean to others and enjoying it. It really hurts me that this happens. I am a firm beliver in the saying ( What goes Around Comes Around )

    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...

    It really agitates me. It's actually (& unfortunately) very, very common, more common than some people might realize. The following is quite upsetting, so, if you get upset easily (like me, actually) I would ask you don't read this, but, this is just for some examples...

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

    I wonder why some people take joy in others suffering, it really doesn't make any sense to me, it is like someone takes joy in someone else's pain, and that is really ****** up beyond words. I hate when people are like that. It is like they think that someone's pain and...

    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...

    Spend time with people

    who makes you happy while also not depending on other people for your own happiness. And be honest with yourself and others by saying what you mean and meaning what you say.

    org/wiki/Misanthropy Unfortunately Misanthropists need a place to play as well. (Those who despise humanity.) They are not exactly evil, just dull, profoundly, miserable people. Thankfully there is enough love to go around on EP. What's a few hitch hikers and parasites?

    The other day my friend Megan's gran was dying

    and she was crying her heart out and what made it worse was a guy made fun of her gran dying in front of her. So when Megan told me about it I hunted the guy down and punched him in the throat after school.

    Does seeing someone else worse then you provide

    you a sense of relief? Do you think " Atleast I'm not that person"? Why do you some people feel this way? Is it a defense mechanism or are we just all partly sadists?
