It is important we care, but it is not always important to care. There is a difference. We spend our lives caring, but caring only works when someone we care about, cares about us.
We concern ourselves over the people who care less about us. We 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 about.
We will go on to care without concern and without the pressures of caring for the people who don’t feel the same way about us.
