There is a kind of person who lives for only one purpose, which is to attract attention among the public. No matter what methods are used, including the stupidest words in the highest voice, as long as he is noticed, he will be proud and feel that he is a human being.
There is a kind of people whose souls are equipped with loudspeakers, and every sound is played out many times in exaggeration, disturbing the peace of the world and neighbors, so they think they have a turbulent and rich soul.
The citizens gather together and they like to talk about two things most: one is the misfortune of others, and they sighed to express their kindness; the other is the luck of others, and they also point fingers and comment to express their kindness. Own integrity. Their enthusiasm for “sympathizing” for the suffering of others, and their enthusiasm for jealousy of the happiness of others, are actually two manifestations of the same virtue.
On a rainy day, you are holding an umbrella and walking on a narrow street. There is stagnant water on the road, so pull over as much as possible and be careful not to splash on you when the car passes by. You can’t see the driver’s face clearly, but at this time you can see his soul more clearly, in other words, see if he has a soul. A soulful driver will slow down for fear of splashing. On the contrary, if a car whizzes by, splashing you all over, you can safely conclude that there is a soulless person sitting in it.
A person with dignity must also respect others. In the same way, people who don’t treat others as human beings expose themselves first.
Dostoevsky once said: When dealing with a noble soul, it is always easy for a traitor to get away, because the former is easy to be deceived, and once discovered, it is limited to expressing noble contempt without resorting to punishment.
I believe that such an experience is familiar to every slightly educated person. Gullibility and tolerance are the most common mistakes made by noble souls. Belief is because you save others by oneself and don’t believe that human nature will be so bad. Tolerance is not entirely because of a broad mind, but more because of a kind of spiritual cleanliness, disdain for entanglement with the adulterer, and unwilling to allow this kind of too close contact to pollute one’s environment and mood.
This does not mean that noble souls lack combat. A truly noble soul, its fighting nature is often manifested in a broader battlefield and more important themes. If the fundamental justice is violated, he will fight without hesitation.
Human nature is to like close to successful people, lucky people, and avoid failures, unlucky people. This is not necessarily based on the calculation of the trend of inflammation, but rather the instinct of tending to pleasure and avoiding suffering. There is a cheerful atmosphere around the winner, and entering this atmosphere seems to share his happiness. On the contrary, even if the loser does not involve others, his bad luck is enough to make people feel depressing. Everyone already has too many worries. Who wants to share the worries of others?
When we were slandered and unnecessarily charged, we were angry. When we were hit by someone and pointed out that there was indeed a stain, we became even more angry.
Fortunately, the misfortune or sympathy or separation of the fortunate towards others, but perhaps even stronger than the two is a fluke: Fortunately, it is not me who suffered!
The unfortunate may be lucky or envious of others, or indifferent, but perhaps even stronger than the two is grievance: why is it me who is the victim of the disaster!
The unfortunate need companions. When we suffer alone, we feel that the injustice of unbearable destiny is better than the unbearable destiny itself. On the contrary, the increase in the number of victims seems to reduce the degree of injustice. We always sigh for a long time about the unfavorable deaths of individual people, but we are often indifferent to the mass murder of wars.
After careful analysis, the essence of sympathy for the same sickness is not necessarily the sympathy of the unhappy, but even more so that the unhappy each takes the misfortune of others as their own comfort, that is, gloating for misfortune. This of course is stupid. However, the uncomfortable have the right to be comforted, even if it is stupid comfort.
I bought a desk and carried it home, only to find a scratch on the desk. Therefore, within a few hours, I always saw this spot, and always thought about it. The entire table was gone, condensed into this spot. When it doesn’t belong to me, I turn a blind eye to spots, which is a negligible shortcoming. Once it belongs to me, it’s the fatal weakness that doesn’t pleasing to the eye.
Is it true for things, and is it true for people?
A toddler fell to the ground and got up on his own. When he saw his mother suddenly, he assumed the posture of falling again and cried loudly.
We adults are not the case. Imagine all kinds of strong emotions, anger or painful gestures. If there is no audience present, how many of them can persist?
