    Default Do we care too much about humanity??

    I always feel that we care too much about humanity while the same people we care for are very selfish. I guess my questions should be do people just use us for personal gain?

    This question exemplifies the problem I have with virtually all NF type profiles. You all are too good for this earth.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Sounds like you are implying we should do a massive NF exodus to a new planet.

    I approve.

    I don't know about others but I'm not Gandhi. I believe in a coherent and peace-seeking conduct but I'm not going to go out of my way to obsess over evil people's problems.

    We definitely care too much about humanity. It won't last.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    I agree very strongly.
    From Experienca I can say, how much I always worked my Ass off for others and how they never even had a simple "Thanks" left for me. People were using me very often. So somewhen I made a simple Decision:
    I will do Stuff for People, but if after a certain Time NOTHING comes back (and I just mean simple "Thank you"s or so), I will just stop. Until they prove to me they are worth it.
    Hard, but fair I'd say.
