We live in our own worlds and do not want to be consumed in the external. We are content with who we are want we have. We may not have personal convictions, strong beliefs, principles, or any kind of soul. We just want to be distant and unengaged. Perhaps this is the best for us after all.
1. We don’t really care
Yes we don’t care. We can numb our feelings and will make dumb conversationalists. Perhaps we are so caught up in our world that what is going on the outside simply doesn’t bother us.
2. We don’t focus on the world
There are so many distractions. We just can’t stand a lot of this especially when we are pushed to buy into what everyone is trying to sell to us. We will rather focus on ourselves instead.
3. We suck at relationships
Yes you want us to show some emotions and tell us how we feel, but we won’t. Because we know that you as our partner do not determine our emotions should be. We evidently suck at relationships because it is possible we are not giving you our all.
4. We want to be mysterious
We really don’t want you to figure us out. We practically keep most of our opinions and plans to ourselves. We make it a practice not to be expressive. And people may consider us to be a labyrinth of many unknown paths.
5. We have got the world figured out
At least in our own way, we have got the world figured out. We understand that not everyone will like us and will give us what we ask. We know we can’t fix the world and we are not ready to give it a try.
6. We are responsible for ourselves
We accept full responsibility for whom we are; our thoughts, opinions and expressions. The truth is that we cannot be responsible for other people, whether their misfortunes or insecurities.
7. We know that only people who matter will stick around
Since we own we are and do not mind what others think about us we know that only the great friends who appreciate who we are will stay. It is not as if we are fake or nasty, we are simply indifferent.
8. We don’t want arguments
Getting embroiled in arguments and disputes can be emotionally draining to us. We want to avoid difficult situations the best we can.
9. We really are not focused on the consequences
This means sometimes we are shortsighted and do not see how far our indifference can cause irreparable damages. We protect ourselves with our indifference since we are indifferent to do outcomes of events.
10. We are not developmental
We are not progressive or trying to make things better. Our environment can be static and unresponsive and we really do not care much about making an input into making a change or improving the lives of those people around us.
11. We are static too
Because we are not focused on making a difference in the lives of others we also affect ourselves because we don’t really improve much. We are static and could be doing the same thing for many years.
12. We cannot be classified
Since we are indifferent, we really don’t care about our social status or what group we belong in. What this means is that people will find it hard to classify us whether we are in or out of a group or a situation.
13. We won’t seize opportunities
Yes opportunities will come. But since we emotionally detached and do not want to get too involved, we will be indifferent to opportunities and let events pan out without us making a contribution or effect. It is best for us this way because we may not be crushed and emotionally invested in anything that will take us away from ourselves.
