    Because you can't.

    Ultimately humans are inherently selfish and don't give a **** about anyone but themselves whether consciously or subconsciously.
    Those people may be there for you every day when you need them but once you **** up or do something they don't like they're gone in an instant. And when they know too much you're ****ed. Either directly or indirectly.

    But Das not true. Because there is evidence for altruism in nature everywhere. Yes we have selfish goals but many people do genuinely care for others.

    A lot of people in my life have done stuff to me that I didn't agree with, done something I didn't like, but I don't just say bye bye instantly. I judge it hollistically, taking into account all the circumstances and also what that person is going through.

    And it just depends. Yes I mean what you're saying could be true in a lot of cases but I've met some people who know a LOT about me and it's never made me feel like I'm ****ed Yknow ? Like I just trust them implicitly.

    Again, this is not many people at all but in my personal experience I have found people I care for and who care about me, unconditionally (outside of family) and people I can trust implicitly. They are rare that's why I said when you find them you hold on for dear life ygm.

    Your only allegiance should be to yourself.

    Also don't eat in public.

    Listen to others, you don't always have to learn for yourself.

    Not everyone thinks like you
    Some people will never find someone like that
    Particularly if your background and community and the people around you are so close minded

    Yeye mean I should have caveated that it's my opinion of course.

    I guess it is not really in my community at home where I have found these people- apart from my family who live there- it's when I left the nest, went to uni, travelled the world and other stuff that I met these kinds of people. Like basically the more people you come across the chances of finding these rare people increases.

    But you're right for some people it does not ever happen but I think in general in life I mean as the years go on I can sort of see who these real ones are Yknow as they've stuck by me through thick and thin and through distance and time apart. It becomes easier to tell with time who has really got your back. Again it really is not that many people. Definitely less than 5 for me.

    Some people really are just too stupid to interact with, you're better off avoiding them than wasting your time.
