Empathy is narcissism

Postby ZeroZ » Fri Nov 29, 2019 11:45 am

Empathy towards other humans, what is it’s primary purpose, why do we even need it? It’s main function in my eyes is to place other humans as a species above all others. With the possible exception of the cute animal breeds of course...

To be perfectly honest I don’t understand why “Donna” who is running around as we speak buying useless crap she doesn’t really need while cutting everyone off in traffic and wasting everyone else’s time. How does “Donna” serve any more of an importance than any other creature on earth?

Wolves are crucial to an eco system, so are the prey they hunt. Neither is more important than the other both serve their purpose in the delicate balance of life and death one that is earned with quick reflexes and sharp instincts. Not a push up bra, padded ass underpants, and high heeled shoes.

Why does “Donna” deserve empathy, what makes her special, why should I even care about her. Empathy is a self serving trait same as any other narcissistic feature, it make the person feel special by proxy. ‘If every other human is special and a gift than so am I’

I have the empathy debate all the time with my daughter.

She has absolutely no empathy or even sympathy for other people and I have to teach her that in order to get on in life you have to relate to what other people are feeling or at least learn to pretend to.

My empathy is more sympathy as I've learned to understand how someone might feel and I pull all the right faces and make the right noises.

I don't give two shiny shites about Donna to be honest and if I said I did then I would be lying.

People who say they have this empathy thing are lying or mentally ill.

I think I just don’t like people as a whole. Most of me doesn’t want to either

That's where we differ Z. I really like people but I also like coming away from them just as equilly.

That’s kind of where I differ from everyone it seems. Naps is about the only other one who has expressed the same views, atleast openly

I identify with Ted Kaczynski a bit too much, let’s just put it that way. Aside from actually wanting to bomb anyone I identify with his manifesto otherwise

Do you not even like playing with people and making fun of them?

This is why I really enjoy them but then I've also had to learn to run fast or at least duck.

A few people yes, but not as much as on here. Not at all, I’m in fight mode mostly out in public.

I don’t expect her to or want her to for that matter. Just let me be myself and not expect me to fit a preconceived idea of what I’m supposed to be and how I am supposed to live my life. Why should I try to fit into a society that fundamentally rejects me. Rejects anyone that doesn’t follow the accepted standard.

Should I ask what this is really about?
I mean unless you caught a case of the covertunsuritis I'm pretty sure you are aware that nobody cares about if you show "empathy" to random people or not. and random people also won't reject you for not being "empathetic" with them, because they're random people and dont know you or care about you. Most of what you are writing here sounds like its going on in yourself. What made you so depressed anyways, you were much less negative a few years ago?
