One thing that seems to effect many people that I know is apathy. It's effected me,
in a very negative manner. I've also seen it's effects on other people. There would
be times when I leave the house and I see my family just drawn to the TV staring at
it for hours. It would be one thing if it was say an hour maybe two tops with a show
that's very... mentally involved. Granted, we cannot avoid screens, but at least many
of things we can do and watch can have some kind thought, passion and class. More
genuine stories, and not all the mindless crap that seems to petaled out by the
(Have I made enemies yet? I hope not. I think anyone can think of these kind of
I respect other's tastes in music and other media, however there are exceptions. I
know it when I see it, however I cannot recall any specific names. These exceptions
are usually the tasteless, bland and purely sensual stuff. Though sensual, I believe
is a part of who we are, it is not the whole. I get the impression that it's being
pushed as if there is nothing else, and nothing else is important. I find these kind
of shows, music and other media repugnant.
Apathy's effects is not just limited what mindlessness we're exposing ourselves to,
but more importantly, by what we're not doing. There's so many things I feel that our
family could be doing for the sake of our health and sanity. Bring some kind of
activity and involvement. Just recently I think I'm starting to make an impact, my
family finds the ideas of actually doing something and going somewhere (anywhere!)
appealing. By necessity our diet has changed (I must omit details). Hopefully this
will mean a brighter future.
I'm tired of seeing the stereotype of the fat, lazy and stupid American.
I'm gonna do what I can bring back the experience, spirituality, love and all those
things we've neglected.
I'm not hoping for the adventures only found in fantasies, I'm just looking for that
feeling, experience and thought.
Has anyone noticed/been affected this as well? Have you ever reached that point to
where you're so bored, you could go nuts? Were/Are you ever "stuck in apathy" where
life seemed uninteresting and dead-ended?
I would like to hear from any of you.
I hope this wasn't a tl:dr deal for you, I try to keep it brief.
Hoping to Make Friends,
