>only animals and fictional characters
They don't have the intelligence nor capacity to act as people do, and they do not expect anything of you. People are a much greater threat to you. They compete with you for resources, they victimize you, they antagonize you, and they are aware of the hostility, and you are exposed to them on a near-daily basis. It is difficult to have sympathy for something if you view it in this context. Whereas fictional characters contain the interesting and good parts of people, real people contain the worst.

People are not innocent, that's why.

>hate people and either don't give a shit about them at all or actively wish they would fall over dead
>will cry if a fictional character is mildly sad for 2 sentences and sob hysterically if something bad happens to them
I'm 29. The older I get the more I feel this way. Hell is other people.

idk mental illness probably or youre just trying to be edgy

I'm not you, your life is yours alone, but I think I have a hypothesis: I too sympathize with non-human animals more than humans, and I believe it's because they don't know any better for the most part. As for fictional characters, it's easier to empathize with a person when you know their struggles, their hopes, their dreams, their motivations, their character, no pun intended, than it is with a random stranger. Fictional characters are people who cannot hide anything, while even the most open of people will not want to share some things, for good reason. It is far easier to empathize with a person you don't know, even if you know they're not real, than a person you barely know and likely never will truly know.

Sorry, meant to say know instead of don't know.
