I am sick of.....

You name it I am sick of it. I am sick of dogs, cats,politics,music, everything. I need a week or a weekend to re coupe and re asses. I am sick of people who say they are struggling but, then have a huge TV in their house or do more drugs then scare face. I am just sick of it.

Why do humans have the need to help?

  1. Good question.

    I think the easy answer is that we have the ability to empathize and that empathy often causes us to help others. We feel a certain amount of pain when we see someone in pain. Helping them eases our pain and helps us feel better about ourselves.

    And, some might add, it can cause us to appear appealing to potential mates. Selfish genes don't have to translate into selfish beings. Or, to put it another way, everything we do is selfish, but some things are selfish and selfless at the same time.
