Introduction:I think you might know some of these people who I feel sorry for. I have recently found some of these people in my life and have re-evaluated my friendship with them. I don't want to feel sorry for them, I want them out of my life.
A person who claims to know it all is in a make believe place. They do not know everything and saying that or even thinking that makes them less smarter than they think rather than what they actually think of themselves. It could be that the know it all is the only one who thinks they know it all. I feel sorry for these people. There are ways to fix a know it all. One is to catch them in something they really do not know anything about and gently bring it to their attention that this area is not in their knowledge bank.
You might have met these hypocrites in church or at a Bible study group. A holier than thou person can quote the scriptures from their head, but when it comes to caring for a fellow human they cannot bring any of their heart into emulate holiness. I feel sorry for these people and the people who think this kind of person is so wonderful. The behind the scenes is the real proof of the caring. When that caring and heartfelt action is not given the holier than thou person fails miserably, I am sure, in God's eyes and I bet God is feeling sorry for them too.
The saying "NO man is an Island" is true. Everyone needs someone sometime. Look around and if and when you discover a person who says they do not need anyone, you will find a lonely person. They have not made the effort to keep friends and treat them well so those people stayed to become deep good relationships with that loner. I feel sorry for the person who thinks they can treat people bad enough that they move away from a person who thinks they do not need anyone. Relationships take work and caring. If a person says they don't need anyone it might be just for that moment and it will not be true for the long haul.
How sorry it is to depend on a person and then be let down. A person who says one thing and then does not follow through is a non dependable person and I feel very sorry for them. What goes around comes around and will certainly roost in their life some time or another. Non dependable people do not value others time and it will be given back to them with the kinds of friends they rely on that will let them down in the long run. Birds of a feather flock together, so these people who are not dependable will be disappointed too. I feel sorry for these kinds of people.
It takes very little effort to be courteous. One has to just pay a little bit attention to others needs and realize others matter. Discourteous people come in all sizes. Someone can seem to be a nice friend for years and then eyes are opened that person is not courteous about others at all. That discourteous person has an agenda and it really is tunnel vision. They get their plan done in spite of others feelings and desires. I feel sorry for this discourteous person who goes to the beat of a different drum than that of realizing others matter too.
