To a certain personality type, you don't have a life, you have a "narrative". Because to them, everything is ambivalence, irony, contradiction and theater. Political protests? Street theater! Despot starving the populace? Jester! Everything of any import must be treated non-seriously due to ambivalence. And meaningless and trivial things must be treated super-seriously.
Your life is important to you, yes? And that's why its importance can never be acknowledged. No, the "truth" is that your life is just a story and if bad things happen in it or it ceases to be entertaining, if you cease haing FUN, then you just stop reading the story, you just stop living your life and you suicide. Suiciding to stop crying? Makes perfect sense!
Oh you got raped? How tragic! How wonderful! Now you have such an exciting story to tell about it. Pity the poor fools who haven't lived life to the fullest! After all, what would life be without all the bad things happening? Boring! Oh you got mutilated by some random psycho? Amazing!
Your life doesn't matter because it's entertainment. And the worst part of this is that it isn't even Evil scumbags that hold this despicable view. No, it's the personality type of anarchists, cultural relativists, rebels, freedom-fighters. The gothic moon-worshipers, the con men, the marginals.
It's not that they enjoy your pain when hearing about it. It's just that they don't care. It's all theater, a play, a stage. If your pains really mattered to you, you'd suicide. And the dead care for nothing so you can just suicide to stop crying. Your life has no meaning anyways, given Existentialism. There is freedom in death and freedom is all that matters.
