Apathy is a dangerous emotion. It does more damage than rage, it hurts more than sadness, it’s more isolating than loniless. Apathy, more than anything is the downfall of everything.
Apathy causes good men to do nothing, it causes great people to never achieve what they could and it causes love to die.
That last one. That is the worst. That is why I truly believe that apathy is what will be the downfall of everything. Even when we are hurt, we can still love someone, even when we are the ones doing the hurting. We can love through rage, anger, frustration, loneliness and fear. We can not love through apathy. Don’t believe me? Try it.
Try to love someone deeply and keep a relationship with them when they are apathetic about that love and relationship. Try to love someone when you are the one who feels apathetic. Try to love someone who has hurt you so much that you feel that way about them.
Apathy may be the most dangerous feeling we can have.
