Value on Non-living things becomes an issue..

You ever wondered why we don't place values on ourselves or our friends?

A case brought foward for me a day last week brought me to fun yet pain...

A lady went to a super store to get some items and within a few minutes getting in, her friend who was with her, stumbled upon the high entrance and fell on the floor, and to my surprise every1 that was there all burst into laughter with just a few sayin sorry to her..but what caught my attention was what happened next..

As she laughed hard at her friends fall her Samsung Note 6 fell of her purse and everyone around her went mute and thrown into panic... My mind went blank as to why a Human will fall and people laugh , but next a Phone (Object) falls and people laught at it?

Any ideas pals, share with me please...

Comments are nice n I want them from you...

  1. Lex, this is a great post and it makes so much sense. I hadn't thought of it this way, but you're right - it's like we care more about the objects than the people. Interesting to think about. Thank you for sharing.

    Perhaps this goes slightly into my post about Shame. We laugh when we are hurt because we feel vulnerable - scared - we don't want people to make a big deal about it and so we don't make a big deal when others fall either. It's easier to feel real emotions when attached to a device rather than a human. Read more about it on my post: http://diyjahn.com/shame/

  2. Love, kindness, and compassion is unfortunately not something many can relate to in today's world.

  3. It so annoying how people value material things to their fellow human being. The amount of love given to a loved one or friends is not big enough or too much.

    Nice post!

  4. This is an interesting question I have asked myself on multiple occasions. As a society we definitely place a higher value on material things than we soemtimes do on human lives. I think about how we send firefighters into harm's way to save homes in areas that have already been evacuated, instead of focusing efforts on containing the fire, we risk human lives to save proeperty. Yes losing a home can be devastating, but not as devastating as losing a family member like so many fire fighter's families have done. Yet, few question the practice because it seems logical to them to protect their homes, their things, all of which are at the end of the day replaceable. But human beings, no matter how distant from us, how unsucessful or marginalized they be in the eyes of society, have a value far beyond any possesion, and their individual lives can never be replaced. Perhaps if we thought more like this, instead of being obsessed with money and things, there wouldn't be so much hatred and war in the world today. Thanks for sharing and making me think!

  5. Wow, what a really eye-opening post. This something I've definitely noticed as well. It's definitely a trend nowadays to see people care more for materialistic things, than for the real humans around them. We spend more time on our phones and using our computers, than interacting and connecting with real humans.
    Maybe we value these materialistic things more because once they break they cannot be fixed? We use hard earned money to purchase these things, but we don't realize that building a good relationship with our friends take just as much time and energy and we only are aware of the numbers and figures. Whereas for humans, we see them as something that is renewable, something constant, which makes us value them less.
    What an insightful post!

  7. We place prison material things while we devalue ourself. I was shopping for shoes last week and a thought ran through my mind. I was like you have over 40 shoes will you take them to the grave when I am gone? Seriously this calls for a sober reflection. All these things are vain. May God help us

  8. Definitely makes you think about things and why people do that. I, myself, are guilty of laughing when a friend falls (as long as it's not serious, of course), but when a phone falls I would get dead silent until the phone was picked up to see if everything was okay.

    I like to think humans aren't horrible people like many make them out to be though. My guess is that people react to a human falling because we can immediately read if they are in pain or if they are just embarrassed. Many times it's not serious and just an embarrassing thing, so everyone else laughs because that's how we relieve our own embarrassment. A phone, rather, does not make a noise or have emotions so we don't know how to feel until it's been picked up.

    Just my thoughts, good post!

    1. so true but the sad part of it all, is that yet we are trully in a tech world that we must be close to these phones and gadgets...

  11. I feel like its because the phone can break whereas the person will probably be fine. But it is weird to admit how desensitized we are to others suffering

  13. Unfortunately the world we live in has become so subliminal and superficial that relationships and people are not as important as they should be.

  14. I have never witnessed something like that before, but that's really sad. It's true though, we do place a lot of value on our electronics. I like to believe it's because we pay a lot of money for the objects. However, our friends are priceless so it becomes an odd situation.

  15. I personally only laugh if a person doesn't get hurt if they fall. I'll even laugh at myself if I trip and fall. Phones are a lot more fragile than the average person. And replacing a phone can be almost $800 if the person doesn't have insurance for it. I don't care about the phone. I feel bad for the person who might have to skip meals to pay for a replacement. Nowadays, it's impossible to live without a smartphone because of how much of our information is stored on them.

  16. It is so true how we have lost feeling for others and replaced it with a hand held device or devices. Glad you brought this point up.
