There comes a time when we know the people who genuinely care, because their actions show they care. Then there are those who say they care, but their actions show a different understanding of what caring means.
It is only when we come to understand that fact that we can emotionally change our perceptions to keep ourselves happier and healthier. At the end of the day, as with any relationship, it’s up to us whether we choose to walk away or stay.
Although it’s often hard to come to terms with knowing people don’t care, in the longer term it becomes easier because we instinctively know what we need to do. We need to be around people who we can rely on that truly show they care.
