These quotes about caring for someone who doesn’t care about you are from my wife, and her dad. They serve as a good reminder of what caring is all about, and why it’s so important to care.
As we know from the movie, when you care about someone, you give them something. In my wife’s case, this is a big enough thing that she feels the need to take care of her parents. I suspect this is why she has the habit of keeping a journal in which she jot down random thoughts and ideas about life. In addition, she keeps a few pictures of herself in her room so she can look back and be reminded of her own life.
The problem is that when you don’t care, you don’t give. You don’t give, you don’t care, you don’t even listen. It is so easy to be so busy that you don’t see that you’re the problem. It’s easy to be so busy that you don’t realize that the person you’re caring about isn’t your real problem.
Because there is a lot of time and effort invested in trying to fix you, even when you want them to fix you, even if you want to fix them, you don’t actually give. You dont even realize that you’re the problem.
It wasn’t until we were caring for someone who didn’t care about us and we were sick, that when someone really needed us, we could actually give. We could actually listen. We could actually care. It was a wake-up call to see that even someone who doesn’t care about you might actually care about you.
You dont care about the person you care about. You dont care about the person, or you love the person. Your heart is in your head. You are doing it.
When I read the quote above in a headline, I was expecting someone to say “that’s a terrible thing to say” or “not that bad of a thing to say” or “it’s a really stupid thing to say” or something similar. Instead, the headline lead me to a study which found that we actually care for others and this is good news for people who care for others.
That’s because when you love someone, you want to take care of them. When you care for someone, you want to take care of them. When you are caring for someone, you want to take care of them. Your heart is in your head. You are doing it.
I’ve heard that before. I even found the quote in the article and I thought “hey, I can’t believe that!” but I’m glad I checked. The same thing is true for other quotes attributed to others. It’s a self-evident concept that we care for others and we want to help them.
I’ve been there. I have loved someone. I can’t help but wonder if I am the only one who feels this way. I have loved the person I am with, in the past, and I have felt this way about that person. I am not sure if I will be able to love that person in the future. I can, but I can’t because I don’t know if I can.
