It’s important we care, but it’s not always important to care. There is a difference. We spend our lives caring, sometimes too much, but caring only works when that someone we care about, cares about us.
Over a lifetime we come to concern ourselves over people who don’t care about us. We also spend a lifetime trying to fit into people’s lives, trying to conform, just so they will care. It’s possible that when we stop caring for those who don’t care about us, we will be free to decide who we care for.
We will also go on to care without concern and without the pressures of caring for the people who its obvious don’t feel the same way about us.
