Some are always wary of people caring about them, especially if the person doing the caring is in a stereotyped group.
Some don’t let themselves be cared for out of worry about being exploited or taken advantage of.
Some don’t care for others because they don’t feel anyone cares the same for them, and that is unfair.
Some think they aren’t worthy of being paid attention to in their pain and so never let it be known.
Some love to care but don’t have proper boundaries or discipline.
But no matter what the mutation of care is, we can all strive towards having that pure heart of love; the heart that cares, that pays attention, that is helpful.
quote by Antonio Porchia, 1886-1968, Argentinian printer and writer
