That’s my line – love me or hate me. I love that line. It does show a little indifference, actually it lets you in how I’m like. This line does indicate that I’m defiant. That’s me I guess. Some people I’ve come across lately have commented that I’m defiant. Sigh…I don’t know what to say about that. But that’s not my point in this entry.
What I’d like to talk about is Indifference.
Indifference is the strongest force in the universe. It makes everything it touches meaningless. Love and hate don’t stand a chance against it (Joan Vinge).
I don’t like people being indifferent to me. In fact I hate it. Wait, moment please. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t care whether acquaintances are like that to me, because they are just…people who know me on the surface. BUT I hate it when my close friends do that to me.
I’m, by nature, a person who reacts by reaction. And if a person does not react to what I’ve said or done (when I expect something), then it would make me agitated and…somewhat upset.
As what Jules Michelet clearly states “The indifference of men, far more than their tyranny, is the torment of women.” How true is that.
Hmmm… To me, if I get a reaction, that means at least the person cares. That’s what I think. It may sound a bit screwed up but that’s what I think. Hahaha… I mean seriously, I’d rather someone, especially my closer friends, get pissed than not even get any reaction from him/her. That’s the worst treatment you can EVER give me. =) Because of indifference, one dies before one actually dies (Elie Wiesel)
George Bernard Shaw summarises “The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them; that’s the essence of inhumanity.”
