    I am a happy popular guy about to go into my first year of A levels. And my parents keep telling me, how I should look out for others welfare. I have tried to tell them that I regard most people outside of my family as just about the lowest form of scum and vermin (I am sure you feel the same about people outside your family and it is completely natural). However, my parents keep telling me to look out for the vulnerable.

    They heard about how recently one girl in our area who was nearly driven to killing herself by bullying and may be doing the A levels at the same place as me next year (hopefully not, that would be very depressing) and said that they hoped if I met her I would befriend such a girl. I do not care about that girl (it is horrible she went through such a situation but it is not my problem).

    My priority is to keep my family and myself safe and nothing else really matters. How can I get my parents to stop trying to get me to care about people outside of my family? I regard the general population as trash so I do not care at all for anyone outside of my family.

    I am sorry if I sound isolationist. However, why should I care about anyone outside of my family and friends. It is not like your average plebby person is a kind humane and interesting person is it?

    Sorry but you seem selfish. Imagine if you were in her position and no one helped you. We are all humans and should be able to relate to one another.

    I think your parents are just trying to install some sense of morality and empathy as it appears you have little.

    The problem is that my parents are too caring and this could mean that the flotsam that is the general population could take advantage of their kind natures.

    People are such garbage though. Look at the student room as a snapshot a parade of idiocy. Now you might say well why come on here then? To which the reply would be there is some quite good banter on here. However, most users outside of myself and a few others are trash. That is nothing against TSR. However, it reflects the general population.

    Then why ask us trashy humans, the general population, on the internet. Perhaps one day in the future you'll need the help of someone else and they pie you off.

    You regard a kind hearted nature as a 'problem'? Just wow...

    To be honest it seems to me that you have such an abject opinion of other human because they treat you in the same way you appear to treat them.

    How can you say you're happy, when you think you're more important than 80% of other people?

    You sound like one of those typical young teen boys who's attempting to sound all 'edgy' and 'dark'. No one gives a ****. Now run off.

    p.s. how you intend to keep your family going if you're not going to eventually meet/befriend people/produce offspring with people outside the family? You are lost son.

    I can hardly imagine that with your attitude you would be a "popular guy"....

    You consider anyone outside of your FAMILY to be scum and vermin, therefore that logic extends to your friends and teachers too.

    Being popular is usually taken to mean a well liked and respected person, somebody people want to befriend.
    You display neither respect nor amicability towards others, and if you think people are scum then you are unlikely to befriend them.

    Therefore if you hold the views that you say you do, here is a net sum of your popularity:

    1. You have no friends
    2. You respect neither your family nor people who are senior to you, (refuse your parents' advice)
    3. You are a hypocrite of the highest order, you seek advice from those you deem garbage.
    4. You are stubborn and cling to views that you KNOW are considered strange and irrational by others.
    5. You never give things a chance, i.e. try socialising with the "scum" and the "plebs"

    Now imagine someone like that transferring into your class. What would you consider them to be, when compared to the hopeless "masses"?

    Your parents are just desperately trying to instill some level of kindness in you so you don't die alone. Because they love you.
