… and then go and wonder why.
Day in and day out I come across this selfishness that has spread on a global level faster than the deadliest virus ever imagined.
Selfishness that is. Lack of empathy, my friends.
It saddens me deeply, everyday, when receiving my dose of indifference.
Needless, to say, I’d rather not receive any more of this, so why do they keep coming at my door?
Oh, yes! It is a pandemic disease.
Lately, I have been in need of true help, real help. Not an ‘I am a spoiled brat seeking for attention’ but a ‘please help me get the proper help to overcome this disease’. I have knocked each and every door.
I have knocked doors that for some reason I expected to be open, because they’d been through that and might give some guidance.
And I have been let down time and again.
Ultimately, I have had to drag myself from a doctor’s office to another doctor’s office to another doctor’s office looking for the help I so much need provided to get me back to being me.
What did I find there? Doctors give up on difficult cases too. Gladly, after taking the tiny bit of money you had saved for a future, they will not recognize they messed up and they just simply will give up on you.
It is the worst feeling to be abandoned at your fate by the doctor who’s supposed to make you better.
And then again, you seek for counsel. Heck, you even send desperate messages to influent people in hope that they still have a little bit of heart and will read your message and maybe (due to their influence) help you get the direction of a qualified doctor that will get you back to normal same way they did with them.
But all you get is silence in return.
We’re living in a society of beggars nowadays. Where did the selfless help go?
‘Help me help you’ seems to be the motto of this era. With money, that is. Give me money so I can pretend to gain some interest in you so I can give you some guidance.
Oh, so you’re really screwed up? I’m sorry. I can pretend to help you, without scattering my brains too much (God forbid) for 80 € per visit. Twice a week.
What did you just say? You’re broke?
Oh… So sorry then, I’m afraid I cannot provide any help to you.
You might as well try to swim out of the quicksand on your own. Welcome to the 21st century Elena!
Here, nobody will throw a stick at you to help you escape from it.
You better try to grab on everything that you might encounter in the meantime and good luck to you. Or stick a knife through your throat if it becomes unbearable.
We might help you a little bit. But that would take some money…
And so the vicious circle goes in all aspects of life.
There’s people who can help and will not do it just because it is not their problem.
And this is the ill minded society that we’re being surrounded with.
People lack of empathy, ethics, morals…
And then people keep on wondering what is wrong with the world.
So if you see someone in need and just turn your head the other way, YOU are part of the problem too.
Do you want to be part of the problem or part of the SOLUTION?
What the world needs now is love sweet love. (Dionne Warwick).
