Re: Apathy and Sensitivity

Oops bump. I don't know if I'd be able to love someone if they actually tortured me. But then I don't really love a whole lot of people (much) anyway, so if it was someone I already love who tortured me... Shrug
I honestly don't know if I still would. I'd like to think I'd be able to, but I don't know if I'm strong enough for that. But then I don't think I'd really love someone who was likely to actually torture anyone in the first place...

Re: Apathy and Sensitivity

"unconditional love" to me, is loving that person within the boundaries of reason. If the person changes completely, then he/she isn't that person anymore. Any more than changing 60% deserves a re-evaluation of the person.

Re: Apathy and Sensitivity

Is a person really a collection of personality traits, or is there more to them than that?

Nope. Just personality and appearance.

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

I swear there's a logical fallacy for that last line somewhere.

Yeah, the definition is important. 'Reasonable love' is kind of what I'm pushing here.

Re: Apathy and Sensitivity

There's a difference between loving someone and being a complete doormat and letting them walk all over you and stuff... Unconditional love doesn't mean you have to give up your dignity. Most people seem to think the two are mutually exclusive somehow... "He hurt me, therefore I shouldn't love him anymore"... it's a bit like apologizing when you're wrong - a lot of people think it's a weak thing to do, but it's actually a sign of strength.

It's not just rainbows
and butterflies
it's compromise
it moves us alooooong.



Stating 'unconditional love' is just stupid. Reasonable love, much better.

RE: Apathy and Sensitivity

I love necro-bumping.

The battle of apathy vs sensitivity. Personally, I think I'm somewhere in the middle. I'm apathetic enough not to let things get to me, yet I'm sensitive enough to give a shit, too.

However, some people are far too apathetic. My brother is a great example of an overly apathetic person. He literally has the "I don't give a shit about anyone as long as it doesn't affect me" attitude. Literally. As long as it doesn't affect him, he doesn't care, and tries to preach that same philosophy to me. Well, get this message, asshole: other people's lives are just as real as your's. Just because their issues don't directly affect you doesn't mean you should just completely ignore them. I remember one time where I was actually shedding tears over the Japan earthquake and my brother was yelling at me to stop caring.
