So cute thought!
Lol don’t worry, I don’t know whether it’s because of my last post or last posts.
I think you’re free to talk about suicide or depression or dark topics or brighter. I don’t mind
If I don’t want to read about a topic or I’m not in the mood, I don’t read but you can talk about it if it’s what you have in mind or heart and you want to talk about it.
(I wanted to say (the meaning was), if we focus to see the bigger picture (in answer to 1 comment using this argument because the author of the comment thought we were only talking about idols) and if that’s what was intended, then we wouldn’t see only "idols suicide " or “suicide from Korea” or just “suicide” or depression, or just a country or one cause of sadness, unhapiness or misery.
Is the bigger picture = suicide in Korea?
I seriously think that in this world, the bigger picture is not 1 country or 1 social phenomenon, the whole picture is all the misery in the world.
That’s why I found it clumsy to bring the topic of suicide in Korean population like that (asking to see a bigger picture). The bigger picture is not suicide or Korea. The bigger picture is the planet, history, present and future, all the misery in the world.
How can anyone ask us to talk about a bigger picture when the same person only talked about suicide in Korea (a part of the picture) without mentionning other parts of the world or other causes of suffering? Where is the line?
In French, we have an expression:
“C’est l’hôpital qui se moque de la charité” = meaning sb criticizing for a default but the person also has the same default.
It’s like the black pot and the kettle or the crab mother asking to her baby crab to walk straight and the baby crab asking her mother if she could show him how to walk straight.
So I found it clumsy to bring Korean population suicide by putting it into contrast like that. And we were talking about a life, idol or not. I found it rather insensitive.
I’d have brought the topic differently if I wanted to talk about suicide in Korea. “It’s not only idols, but also…”
No need to say that sb should see a bigger picture for this and angel saw the bigger picture already.
- An author about happiness talked about 2 sources of happiness. The natural one where we decide and deserve it and the synthetic one (fabricated) despite adversity and hardships. Our capacity to create our own synthetic happiness: we tend to think the future will be slightly better than the present.
Or you had a bad day or something terrible happened or another consumer took the tomato you wanted to take, but your disappointment is still acceptable for you or the day after or time later, your brain attenuates it or your attention is on something else or you think of making a carrots soup instead or mood swings. Or relativise.
In some situations, we need it for our own survival. A natural immune system that protects us.
If we couldn’t attenuate the feeling of hurt with time or think tomorrow or some future time will be a better day, without hope or some faith, or think we have some chance to do it or believe in ourselves a little even after some bad events, then how could we continue?
We need some optimism to continue or success in something we set for us.
That’s why I prefer not to read topics when I know I’m not in the mood or in boo boo mood or when I’m seeking some sunshine or looking for my daily dose of smiles
But feel free to talk about it, I don’t mind.
