Or maybe because they've been ruined by the people in their lives. I am horribly abused mentally by my father. I've been for about four years now. As a result of that, my feelings are very sensitive, yet I am very insensitive to others. I don't really know how to treat people nicely anymore. The guy that I like a lot, I bully him in ways that I've been bullied for a few years now. Death doesn't get to me. Peoples' feelings hardly matter to me. It's not so much that I'm a bad person, but that I've forgotten how to feel. I'm sure that deep down, I am an amazing, strong, wonderful, and beautiful young woman that is able to love and treat people well. I just need to find her and save her before I lose her forever.
They are being mean because they are insecure about themselves. It makes them feel better about themselves when they are mean to others. Don't let mean insecure people tear you down. Be the wonderful person you are, don't let those people make you think you are not a wonderful person. Good luck! I hope I was able to help you.(:
Abuse from other people doesn't make you insensitive to others. I've been there. I think humans are ultimately disgusting creatures, but I'll be the first person to jump up if someones having a bad day. Alot of people are just inconsiderate and selfish. And those people will probably never change. Just like the compassionate, selfless ones will probably never change. Just gotta deal with it.
They were not born heartless some people are heartless because of their feelings I mean they did not chose to be but they became.If no one gets you and if your life is so difficult and stressful I think it is better to hide our feelings and became a heartless person.
