Indifference Is The Worst State To Be In

As humans, we have a remarkable capacity to love and be intrigued by places and phenomena. However, we also have a profound tendency to be indifferent towards any number of things.

Engage With The World

Humans are social creatures. We are supposed to engage with one another. When we become indifferent this leads us to close ourselves off from the world.

“Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all — the apathy of human beings.”

Empathy is a trait we should all have more of, but we neglect it more than most. To ignore rights and wrongs, to be indifferent to what is going on around you is to bury your head in the sand.

The Takeaway

Indifference is what leads us to live a life that is not truly ours. By being indifferent to justices in the world, we are remaining passive when we should be active.
