Post Loss of Compassion

So I've recently experienced a sudden, drastic loss of compassion for others. It just seemed to happen a few nights ago. I no longer care about anyone or anything. I would be willing to sacrifice anyone to save myself. I would kill if it benefited me. I simply don't feel compassion anymore, and I've noticed my sense of morals has become very objective, not at all emotional (besides anger). I still know the difference between right and wrong, I just don't care about right and wrong anymore. I don't feel that emotional caring anymore. In fact, I strongly question the existence of right and wrong now. I always have, but since I experienced this loss of compassion I've been questioning it more now.

The only reason I care about this is out of paranoia. A part of me fears that someone or something may be deliberately changing me. Another part of me, the little bit of compassion I have left, fears I may be becoming corrupt, but that doesn't seem to matter to me now.

My hypothesis is that due to the fact I've spent so much time(most of my time) thinking about morals and looking at the bad things in the world that I've simply become accustomed to it all. I no longer feel that emotional response I once had. Right and wrong have become objective to me. So because I was one of the most compassionate people on the world, I have become one of the least compassionate. I hope that this hypothesis is correct and not my paranoid version.

It's like a battle within myself. There's that small bit of the normal, compassionate me, and then there's the rest of me. That compassionate side keeps trying to go back to how things were, and the anti social side of me is trying to get rid of that compassion.

You should try to talk to your parents or anybody about this. Make some friends or go outside... You just need some air. ( tried to say this in the least oppressive way possible )

Chances are, you are becoming a conservative.

All kidding aside, I think that this is a relatively common experience for many adolescents. If you look at most Ayn Rand supporters, they are college students. IT is a radical new way to look at the world and it is rather appealing to not care. It sure makes like easier.

I've been diagnosed as both a socio-path and a psychopath and whilst I do not think that you fit either two of this personality disorders, it may be worth finding a counsellor or a specialist within neurological personality disorders and finding the trigger for this sudden change in nature.

Feel free to PM me, interested in meeting new people-16/bi

Maybe you are discouraged in the world and the environment surrounding you. Perhaps, you've lost hope in humanity. If that's the case, just look at all the beauty in people and all the good things we do. If it's from your personal environment, look for something to cheer you up. Maybe increasing your positivity in terms of glass half full over half empty might help conquer the loss of compassion you've felt. Think about those close to you and how appreciative of them you are. If the feelings become violent or worsen in any manner, it's best to see a professional( therapist or psychologist)

I've felt that way before but in a lot shorter periods. And I tend to take it out on my sisters
