…the opposite of love is not hate — it’s apathy. It’s not giving a damn. If somebody hates me, they must “feel” something … or they couldn’t possibly hate. Therefore, there’s some way in which I can get to them.

Apathy is the cardinal sin of humans. To let go of emotions so that you stop feeling whatever was bothering you. Creating an invisible wall around you in which no one’s feelings can crawl through.

To give up you humanity and getting reduced to a machine.

Yes, yes, yes, this is what apathy is.

lack of feeling, emotion, interest, or concern about something

Yes, it is lack of all that makes you human.

Apathy has been considered so bad, that it is considered under Sloth, one of the Seven Deadly Sins of Christianity.

Apathy is the worst emotion you can experience. It disconnects from your own humane nature reducing into nothing but a couple of bones covered with meat. Apathy is DEATH!!!

In death, you don’t feel anything, everything ceases to affect you. You neither feel happy nor sad nor anxious.

So, tell do you find apathy something less that DEATH?

If you do, then, I am sorry to say, you are WRONG!

Have you ever felt apathy?

After reading so much apathy, the answer you will find is NOOOO!

But, this is actually not true.

Yes, you have felt apathy knowingly or unknowingly.

The day you felt so bad, you just stopped feeling anything.

The day you received that bad news, you just stopped feeling anything.

The day you read a girls commits a suicide because of bullying, you just ignored it.

The day you read that voting is important, but you choose not to vote. You would rather wait for hours outside Apple store.

American youth attributes much more importance to arriving at driver’s license…
