I need help on how to control my emotions. More specifically, I want to get less angry at people in general. I know it's a sin but I cant stand ignorance and I hate to see people just waste their lives or live in complete ignorance; ignorance which they embrace.
Basically, it's "Why should I care," or "I'm in it for myself attitude" that really ticks me off.
I.E. where I live and where I go to school, there are these people who probably never worked a day in their lives. They've just been handed life on a silver platter and still complain. I can't stand their whining, their disregard to their fellow human being; it's like they have their own superiority complex and hold the world in contempt because of it.
The funny thing is though that every time I think along those lines I end up debating and getting angry with myself for thinking that way. The whole "Who are you to judge?" thing, or, "You don't know these people to think of them as you do," or finally, my personal favorite, "Don't assume anything."
But still, I can't come to the reality that these people not only live under a veil of lies, but also close their eyes. They utterly refuse to see the world around them, i.e. the poor, the starving, the oppressed, etc, I guess you could call it pride.
(Think that's enough typing for now, any help is much appreciated)
