helpless helplessness

"We once wanted to change the world, but later, we realized that it was impossible"

Watching the protagonist get lost in the never-ending redemption, I can't help but feel the same way. I once wanted to be a teacher, but I watched the students humiliate their youth in ignorance and confusion, and watched them go into the abyss with great pain. , but helpless, so sad. I used to be full of longing and naive to think that I could change the world, only to find out that the world is much more complicated than we thought. So I felt like a martyr in the Middle Ages, and the pain in my heart probably surpassed the pain in my body as I watched the person whom I had so hard to save crucify me with their own hands. However, we are not martyrs after all, and my name will not be passed down to future generations. Suddenly, I felt that with the size of the world, there was nothing to block this biting cold wind. As a result, our hearts are very heavy and detached. After all, we cannot escape, we cannot save the others we want to save, and we cannot even save ourselves.

So I gave up the dream of being a teacher, just because I didn't want to see my powerlessness, I didn't want to see the children slip into hell in my own hands, and I was afraid that I would be left alone like the protagonist. Unsalvageable sin goes beyond even leading a person astray.

I once wanted to pull you out of the quagmire of pain, but now I find that I can't even reach out my hand.

So be it.

    We may only be warming each other when we are alive, trying everything we can to escape loneliness.

    In the final analysis, family problems lead to problem children, and problem children lead to more problems for children, so before becoming a parent, at least make sure that you have this qualification... Teaching and educating people is so sacred, but teaching is really a hard job, Liu Yuling's speech is heart-wrenching, screenwriter Talented, Brody did a great job

Detachment quotes

  • Henry Barthes: Y'know it's funny, I spend a lot of time trying to not have to deal... to not really commit. I'm a substitute teacher, there's no real responsibility to teach. Your responsibility is to maintain order, make sure nobody kills anybody in your classroom, and then they get to their next period.

  • Mr. Wiatt: I was in my room for 2 hours and saw one parent. Where are they? Where is everybody? It's uncanny, no air raid sirens, not bombs. It doesn't happen that way. It starts with a whisper, and then nothing.
