All that is effectively and great- for them. Some people are grateful for more essential things than those of a material nature, and we are pleased with those things, when we might have them. To me, it sometimes comes across as scrubbing it in the people of the never as fortunate, and who actually desire to be greater of materially. If you ask me, discover I said that. And to me, the individual world is just a nasty, tough, selfish and very evil place.
Don’t misunderstand me: I am truly pleased when I see folks are pleased, and I certainly do not begrudge everyone the maximum amount of pleasure as they can glean using this life. Not at all. We each have our own personal lists of what makes us happy. Quarry mostly contains needs, with a couple of non-material needs such as peace from a very stressful life and earth, and some slack every today and again from the difficulties of life.
However when I begin to see the lists, often I liken it to some poker participants who get happy on the river and then rub it in the faces of the they overcome badly. They got one lucky card, and that is how they won. They chased that really small dream on a call and a wish for the wonder water card with very little within their like till the literal very end. They played the give poorly and finished up honored for it.
Then their answer is an immediate “whew”, or “whoa, did I get fortunate”, followed closely by jeers of a taken triumph to those they essentially robbed out of a winning give until that last card. I call those individuals bad champions simply because they are. It’s understandable to reduce less than gracefully in a hand like that, because you understand you did everything correct. It’s really one more thing to get significantly less than graciously when you realized damn properly that the whole time you’re pursuing with nothing. Win or eliminate in poker, it’s expected that may happen, and it can happen really often.
I have had those miracle cards myself, and I’ve truly chased my share of containers and passed out some poor defeats, but I’ve to split up myself from the bad winners. I will genuinely say I’ve never gloated when I have had a miracle water card. I’ve quietly been happy that the card arrived on the scene which won me the give, but I generally agree with the moaning loser, that it’s bullshit, I’m a donk, and all the other insults we poker players throw out at each other. I acknowledge, and I do tell them in the conversation that I agree, and sometimes, I even apologize.
Personally i think detrimental to them, but happy for myself, nevertheless that pleasure is temporary because another give is already being dealt. Normal human response. Some things are better left unsaid, and taunting the person(s) you’ve got beaten by sheer luck alone and perhaps not by talent or perform is incorrect and should not occur. But it does, and it always will.
That leads me back once again to Thanksgiving 2018. I’ve generally felt uncomfortable stating aloud that which I am happy for, and poker finally showed me why. It’s like taunting those who are not as lucky, not as lucky, who don’t have near as much, or anything more, and I won’t do that.
So I is going to be glad for what I do have, but I will be quiet and keep it to myself, since I am aware the hardships life may throw our way. It’s individual character to be envious. I know- I used to be real jealous of what other folks had, until I seen that I possibly only didn’t perform rather difficult enough to acquire their degree of comfort, or that I did not have the talent to acquire specific degrees in life; some things merely aren’t within my terrace of living cards.
