Why happened to compassion?

Why have most people become so angry, short tempered and impatient with eachother. Think about it we all do it, when we're waiting in a line, being stopped for directions or worse approached with a question while at work from a customer. We never act this way in certain situations yet in others we become almost animalistic. Whats happening to us?

Hi wesfrishkorn, It seems we have created a society that wants instant satisfaction and people have forgotten the meaning of patience. There was a time when people were laid back and relaxed, but today we want everything yesterday. That I believe is the reason for our anger and short temper, we always have to get some place and having to wait in line anywhere slows us down, while our minds are telling us that we have to rush rush rush. Blessings.

We also have a lot more on our plates than we used to. Things are more expensive and we are expected to have more. We are getting further and further into debt which causes us to have to work more and more. Besides that, being in debt eats away at our insides and it comes out in other forms, such as crabbiness. We also are trained to busy ourselves wasting a tremendous amount of time each day with thing such as tv, video games and yes, the internet. I recomend taking some time out to meditate each day or find a relaxing activity you enjoy and set time aside for it at the very least.

According to our countries environment, i think its because person became too much busy in their own work, socialization is less. In old days person used to live with too many person, different kind of person. Nowadays person having lots of workload and no time for family or relatives. that could be reason behind this.
