People who are miserable usually want others to be miserable. It's hard to be sweet and sunny when you are really hurting inside.
Perhaps its their meanness that's ultimately making them upset?
I guess that's because they don't have the strengh to think about others...they're overwehlmd with what they deal with
i think the answers in the question im afraid:
because they are or have been emotionally hurt meaning they dont want it to happen again, they got fed up of being kind & giving..... when theres mean people out there who done better than them but they are just selfish .
I'm a self confessed *******. I know that. I am mean to people and that's because I hate myself. I notice that when I get into deep moods I start feeling angry at others who at the time I think have a much better break than me. I get this attitude, "If nobody's being careful around my feelings, then why should I go out of my way to help someone else feel good when I can't even help myself?" I want people to feel like I do I guess.
In no way was I offended. Thanks for acknowledging :)
The most basic forms of life only know self protection, community/love/friendship was tacked on (pretty recently really) when warm bloods showed up. The human psyche falls back on it's roots when stressed.
They're not, really. They're just tired of depression (it's a form of pain), and hopelessness and they just want to be left alone.
Because they love to do that.
