I think people get angrier when I don’t react to their own anger. On one hand, I can see how anger could be an important evolutionary trait to have in certain situations, but on the other hand there are so many things I just don’t give a shit about and never will. People expect me to care about certain things but I can’t help myself, especially if it doesn’t even threaten my own (or a loved one’s) survival in this world. And even if it did threaten my existence here, there’s plenty of other worlds to explore after our time here.
To the person that was irrationally yelling at me after philosophy class yesterday, I’ll pass on a message from the Buddha: “You will not punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.” I wish this person nothing but best, along with some form of therapy for her own well-being.
p.s. especially don’t expect anything out of me after philosophy class when my mind is still outside of my ego-centric body trying to appreciate all these beautiful concepts lol.
