What is cynicism?
TLDR overly critical + anger + nihilism
Greek philosophers who challanging everything
People highly critical and suspecting others are motivated by worst intentions, seeing only negative things in others and are willing to highlight them to others this way.
People driven by fear, may come from paralisis from experiencing self in a hierarchy ladder, on the nihilist side, who don’t decipher that great things start with simple, humble first steps.
What if the world was composed only from cynical people?
Nothing would ever be created
What to do?
Avoid cynical people and cynicism in yourself. There are people that will see in your activity good direction and intentions. There will always be cynical people, but we don’t look at them
I don’t want to feel cynical
