Acceptance of death is one thing, but I also believe that desensitization is an issue, especially with ones so young. More so for the fact I don't believe 2,3, or even 4 year old(s) should be witnessing those things. I'd also like to state the mental scars that some children may experience due to these things may effect them throughout their life and can hinder them in some sort of way. These are my opinions regarding me, I won't (or will try not) to press these beliefs on others. Yet despite that I still think desensitization is a problem and will stand firmly by it.
I contradict myself a lot it seems.
I do agree with that to a point, I dislike discussing religion with others though so I don't think I'd go to in depth with my thoughts on this.
I can see how view points can be blatantly different when concerning the type of up bringing or socially acceptable situations (from different cutlers/beliefs/ect.), so I wont argue with you too much on these things (though I think I'd like to more for shits n giggles than anything else).
I'm beyond making much sense though. Finals are today and the fact is my brain is on a lot of other things right now. I need to wrap this up and register for next semester.
I can’t really put too much stock into what “Psychology” has to say. Simply because there are hundreds of books that contradict each other that it seems the general view point have become askew along the way. Though I don’t think we are all afraid of death. I’ve known quite a few religious people who joyously accept death, because mainly what they believe and what “rewards” they will get in the afterlife. I won’t, for obvious reasons, go into detail on my thoughts concerning that; I’d have to believe the general concession on that should be that “The majority of peoples fear death”, though that still doesn’t explain sky divers to me. I doubt anything will explain sky divers to me. And before you begin on the text book definitions of “adrenaline junkies”, I do understand the need or addiction to some form of endorphins (etcetera) or the like blah blah blah, but I still think all who sky dive more than five times in their life should be held certifiable in the eyes of all.
Surrounded by death is an over dramatization, something I allow myself to indulge in once in a purple moon (I think that’d stand out more than blue).
How is desensitization not an issue? I think it’s a huge issue, in fact I’ve watched a four year old draw me pictures of dead people just yesterday (she placed emphasis on how much blood was coming from her eyes, limbs, heart, among other extremities) all because she watches “Vampire Diaries” (I’ve never seen the show and haven’t really had an itch to either) with her mother. That disturbed me more than I’ll let on to her or the parent. I think desensitization is an issue that plagues most everyone (sadly though myself included). I’m not saying every school shooting is due to video games, that every teen murder spree outside the school is blamed on rap artists, or that even drug use in young adults are due to media brainwashing (well to a point, and I emphasis that, it may contribute to some easily lead child/children).
What I am saying is that today’s children versus those of the last generation having a form of degeneration in sympathy and compassion while apathy is rising in numbers (if we were to prepare it on a scale of some sorts). As I’ve stated before, we’re an over medicated society that people proudly display all the problems that they have (such as bi-polar, ADHD, etcetera) and you see it in the majority of school children. So again, I don’t know how you can say that desensitization isn’t a problem.
If you have any problems (wouldn’t want to “irk” you, I haven’t seen that word in ages) remember what you’ve sent via PM I’ll gladly send you a copy via PM ironically enough. I’d have to get back to you on the statement you’ve made and I quote “We can't care for what we don't know”. I disagree there, but right now I don’t have the initiative to go into detailed depths of how/why I disagree.
It could be viewed as a question posed to myself. I guess it depends on how you view it. A relationship? Well there are forms of relationships, associates, friends, family, lovers, boyfriends, husbands…even that person you nod to every day at school or pass by in the hallway with a quick hello. I guess that would be lower than an acquaintance, but you still enjoy one another’s company.
As for me knowing you, no. I don’t. Nor would I pretend to. You’re an interesting person, but I don’t believe I’d truly know you without extensive (truth) talking and months of interrogation on my part. Yet even with that, I’d only know the person you’d wish for me to know. The anonymity of the world wide web provides almost a secure net for people to become what they’re not, to talk like they don’t usually and to share ideas they wouldn’t utter outside the keyboard realm. Fine or great is a wonderful response, if it’s versus the response of absolute silence or the dejected response of “kick rocks”. An amusing saying I’ve heard a time or two.
I hope that has answered your question thoroughly enough.
Hello again. I have seemed to have survived my break. And enjoyed trying to stay above water. I'm not sure if we're in the whole "Randomly stopping by and asking how things are" stage in our conversations. So I figured I'd drop by and see if you were still present on this site.
