Empathy Or A Lack Thereof

The gurus were a bit disappointed at the length of the last discourse so I went ahead and overdid it with this one…haha jokes on you, since when do I care about what people say?

This brings us to here and now ladies and gents. What really is empathy? Is it the feigned concern you show when someone misses their step and falls (when you high-key want to laugh but home training won’t let you be great?)

Or is it when someone dies and they’re not all the way close or dear to your heart and you decide to join the masses to weep buckets. You don’t even know why some of them are weeping that much, could be that the deceased owed them a considerable amount in debt. (“R.I.P Aunty the evil you’ve done in this world is enough”)

Now let’s talk about the female folk for a bit, no offense but what constitutes excess crying? The indomie has too much pepper? Ehen! is that why you’re crying? You said “I love you first” now he doesn’t want to say it back (just yet) now you’re crying? How is it going to help the matter? My dear carry your “L” with your chest.

The gentlemen have learned the art of accommodating rejection first hand. We don’t stand around sulking when things don’t go our way. If Access bank ATM doesn’t pay, what’s stopping you from trying GT Bank ATM? (Scratch that, don’t try GT man these people are corporate thieves but don’t tell them it’s me that told you, I can’t afford a low budget lawyer just yet)

In all my dealings with women ( haha see you amebo), I’ve come to realize NOTHING. No, seriously I’ve learned absolutely nothing. Just when you think you’ve figured them out, they try to emotionally blackmail you even for the most basic favors and they get away with it because “Patriarchy”. ( e-feminists about to hold torches in front of my house at this rate)

Entitlement mentality. The average human being is looking for a way to profit from you. Don’t blame me for being indifferent when the only time you reach out to me is on your birthday to “do something for my boy”. You weren’t “My boy” all of last year, what suddenly changed? (People get used for sacrifices for less my friend)

What is the appropriate thing to do when someone breaks into tears? Pat them like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory (no it’s not a movie about porno) or beat them in addition so they actually have a valid reason for crying! (Don’t look at me, that’s what the average Nigerian parent does).

All in all, I think empathy varies per individual and every single person has that thing within them that defines them as human (haha scratch that, obviously joking there are tailors who in my experience aren’t human. I mean who starts to sew the outfit you gave them a month ago two days before it’s time for the wedding?)

Till next time, lazy youth.

      1. Humans are build that way. Caring about only themselves, while forcing empathy to fit the social norms and be in the good books of others.

  1. When someone dies and theyโ€™re not all the way close or dear to your heart and you decide to join the masses to weep buckets?
    – Here we call these people token or professional grief junkies. You know the sort โ€“ they rock up to the scene of a crime or funeral with teddy bears, flowers in cellophane and messages with shit like โ€œRIP sleeping with the angelsโ€ and 9/10 times they never met the person in their entire life.

    Now letโ€™s talk about the female folk for a bit, no offense but what constitutes excess crying?
    – I’m a cold, soulless bitch and seldom cry but when I do it’s away from others and usually one intense burst of sobbing, streaming snot and tears and then I get myself together and carry on. I get annoyed with excessive or repeated crying for effect nothing pisses me off quicker or more than someone who just starts blubbing cos I’ve told them off for something minor.

    Same goes for sulking. I have no time for sulking, skulking and people that walk around bitching forever because you’ve had words. From my own experience the worst kind of sulking, bitching and whingeing people are men. Possibly a very sexist viewpoint I know but it really gets on my tits to have men behaving like the worst, flakiest type of woman. Just suck it up, shut the fuck up and move on.

    Again and as I’ve said many times before, this is one reason I prefer to spend my time in the company of animals rather than people. They don’t sulk, bitch, hold grudges or give a shit when you do unleash a genuine torrent of tears and snot bubbles. They just sit there and go โ€œHey you OK? I know you’re not but I’ll just sit here until you feel betterโ€

    My kinda friend. I don’t need people wrapping arms around me and saying I need to talk about feelings and get it all out in the open. No I don’t. I need to cry and get it out of my system then go and walk or ride five miles through fields and shit and play catch with dogs ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hahaha, I had a glass of water in my hand reading this entire comment.

      Hate those professional grief junkies.

      Cold, soulless bitch. Sounds like a cool urban merch campaign. ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Haha men sulk when they don’t get what they want 200% of the time.

      Animals > Humans. This is common knowledge.

      Thanks for sharing, enjoyed reading this ๐Ÿ˜‚
