Default Do you ever feel disgusted with humanity?

For a while, I've been having anger over various things. I feel angry about the way people treat each other, some things people have said or done to me, and situations in my life. I hate the fact that there's racism, homophobia, sexism, and hate in general in this world. Sometimes, people will try to justify this. Mistreating people seems "acceptable" to TONS of people. That is one reason why I feel disgusted.

Another reason why I feel so disgusted with humanity is this "sense" of apathy or indifference that I notice. I'm not sure if it's just me, or if this is true. But it seems like a lot of people are apathetic and indifferent about so many things in life. For example, I notice indifference when it comes to social issues. I tend to be more outspoken than my peers. Sometimes, I feel like I don't fit in because of how outspoken and passionate I can be at times. Also, I realize that most people (face-to-face) don't seem to care about your problems. I lean towards the internet because people seem to have more compassion here.

Another reason: people just make me angry. I'm a very angry person. I had a mental health counselor who really pissed me off about a few months ago. I haven't been able to let go of this. He said some things I didn't like. I remember walking pass him and I waved at him but he said nothing.

Sometimes, people don't always piss me off but situations have a way of pissing me off. If I see an "unlucky" number or time on the clock (I have a problem with OCD), that'll piss me off.

There are a million things that I want to say but I'll stop here. So, how about you? Can you relate? Any advice? Any thoughts? Any stories?

There are millions of things that I want to say but I'll stop right here.

At times it's okay to feel how you're feeling. But you see there aren't only bad things happening around us. There are good things too. Yes.. some people are racists and sexists and what not but there are people who are good and they are the example that humanity still exists. So in my opinion believing in that can be a positive add to this world.

And why do you want to stop? :P We will listen to you so feel free to share your thoughts! :)

I think that just tends to happen as you get older because you realize there's a lot you simply can't change about the world. I used to be pretty outspoken about issues like racism too. I eventually made peace with it because it became waste of energy and an unnecessary stressor when I had so much other personal shit to deal with. You have to really think about how much an issue will really affect you and whether or not it's worth getting mad about.

In my experience, that's not out of the ordinary. Unfortunately a lot of therapists/counselors are not cut out for their line of work. Did you at least tell him what you didn't like? I think it's better to get it off your chest, even if he doesn't respond well to it.
