Distressed existences are sympathetic to me
Sometimes we are attracted to people who seem to have done everything wrong. People who swim against the tide, who fail again and again, but still don’t give up. They may not be success stories, but they have character and are authentic. That is exactly what makes them so sympathetic to us. This phenomenon is called the fascination with failed existences.
In our society, we are often fixated on success and achievement. But what if all our efforts fail?? What if we can’t or won’t conform to the norms of society? This is where failed existences come into play. You are an antithesis to all that is sold to us as successful and desirable. They bring color into the gray and challenge us to question our own ideas of success.
Of course, not every person who fails is automatically a failed existence. But if someone works hard but just can’t manage to move in the direction given, then that is quite admirable. Because it takes courage to go against the flow and go your own way. Ultimately, the point is that we should value everyone, regardless of success or failure, as long as he or she is authentic.
The fascination for down-and-out existences is therefore not a sign of masochism or failure thinking, but rather an expression of tolerance, openness and respect. We should free ourselves from prejudice and open our eyes to those who are different. Because sometimes there is a real hero behind a supposed failure.
Who are actually crumbling existences?
Broken existences are people who are seen as failures in society. They have difficulty finding work and their financial situation is often precarious. Sometimes they also have problems with drugs, alcohol or crime. However, there are also many down-and-out existences who have simply had bad luck in life and got into their situation through unfortunate circumstances.
Although down-and-out existences are often stigmatized, they often have their own personalities and interesting stories to tell. Sometimes they have even developed a deeper perception of the world as they face challenges that are foreign to most people. Broken existences can also be very empathetic and have a deep understanding of the difficulties of others.
For some people, therefore, screwed-up existences can be very sympathetic. They represent the misfits of society and are often seen as underdogs struggling against all odds. Many people also see them as a kind of freedom or rebellion against society’s norms and expectations. Of course, there are also people who perceive failed existences as a threat and show them a lack of respect.
Why are some people crumbling existences?
There are many reasons why some people become messed up existences. Some have had difficult childhood experiences and struggled with mental health issues their entire lives. Others have made bad choices or are just too comfortable to work hard and stay hard.
Sometimes it is also factors beyond their control such as lack of education or poor economic conditions in their area. In many cases, these people also lack support and a network of people who can help them achieve their goals.
- A poor education
- Mental health problems
- Poor economic conditions
- Lack of support
However, there are also people who consciously choose to become screwed-up existences. They do not care what others think of them, and they prefer their own good to the good of others. For some of them, it’s a way of life, while others just don’t know how to manage their lives.
Regardless of the reason they become messed up existences, they are often stigmatized and misunderstood by society. But for some people, they have a special charm and fascination because they are independent and unpredictable, so you can’t just pigeonhole them.
What makes down-and-out existences sympathetic??
Broken existences are people who have failed – whether in their careers, personal lives, or both. However, many people feel sympathy for these individuals, even though they are often viewed as failures or losers.
One reason for this could be that failed existences are usually authentic and honest. They have often experienced the depths of life and have developed a certain humility as a result. In addition, they are often very affable and make you feel valued.
Another factor is their often creative and unconventional way of thinking. They often have unusual ideas and views, which can sometimes even be brilliant. Their ability to learn from mistakes and self-reflect can also be very admirable.
Of course, there are also people who find down-and-out existences sympathetic merely out of pity or schadenfreude. But overall, it seems that despite their weakness and defeats, these people often exude an aura of humanity and vulnerability that appeals to and touches many people.
How we can help give struggling livelihoods a fighting chance
We often sympathize with screwed-up existences because we can see ourselves in them – we all have difficulties and sags in life. But how can we really help these people? Here are some suggestions:
- Support in finding a job: often crushed existences have difficulty finding work. We can help them by helping them build a resume, find job opportunities, and even prepare for interviews.
- Financial help: If it is in our power, we can offer financial support to troubled existences. Whether it’s a small donation to buy groceries or a larger sum to pay down debt, any help can make a big difference.
- Empathy and understanding: sometimes, messed up existences just need someone to listen to them and understand them. We can show patience and empathy and strive not to condemn them, but instead support them.
- Continuing education and training: many messed up existences have difficulty finding work due to a lack of education or skills. We can help them by helping them to further their education. We could point out opportunities for them to learn new skills and further their education.
Ultimately, it’s about making troubled existences feel like they’re not alone and that someone is there to help them. We can do all these little things to give them a chance and show that we believe in them and support them.
