Pity: The driving force to our survival

We are surrounded with terms such as Act of Kindness, Act of Compassion, Act of Love…

These terms could fit with people we know and also like and respect.

And what about strangers?

Hundreds upon hundreds of people we don’t know had pity on us, before we got cocky to consider Pity as a bad connotation.

We avoid like the plague Act of Pity.

The Samaritan had pity on the wounded and robbed person. Actually, these kind of people have pity on living creatures and Not just human kind.

The driving force to our survival is this sense of Pity. We extend a helping hand for someone, so he can make it through the day, emotionally and financially.

So many time, as we were growing up, people aided us, and Not because we were cute, funny, or talented or saw potentials in us.

We are in need of tenderness, care, disoriented, frustrated, can’t see the end of the horizon, what we should be doing, where to go, how to behave, how to communicate…

So many times we were isolated, almost famished, no place to spend the night, where to go when sick, penniless, at the end of the roll…

And somehow, we managed to survive the day. And we refuse to recall who helped us, how we were rescued.

Hundreds upon hundreds of strangers came to our rescue, and we never had the courage to remember a few of these Samaritans.

We try to substitute pity for responsibility, though responsibility is an acquired quality.

Pity should be elevated to the highest great level of connotation.

All other “good terms” be degraded one level.

If you still consider Pity as a bad connotation, then you are a pitiful person. And this time around it is the worst of bad connotations, a “Pitiful person“.

Note: You watch animal documentaries and you notice that carnivorous big feline attack the fallen behind in a herd or looking Not fit to follow the herd. No, it is Not to salvage their energy, it is “Out of Pity“, like this term or Not.
