“Why do I feel like no one cares?”
Probably because you don’t care?
There was a point in my life where I just didn’t give any shits about anything and it made everything around me seem stupid. I was uninspired, unmotivated, sleepy almost ALL THE TIME, and convinced that no one cared enough. I took a step back, looked at my dumb old life and made a drastic change. I moved to a completely different city, started to ACTUALLY work on shit I cared about, made plans AND KEPT THEM, and began working toward something bigger than myself.
Life is funny. We’re all convinced that everything is out of our hands. We think we have no control. We just LET things happen as if we have no choice. BUT YOU GUYS, we do have a choice, and we can take control.
Take a moment. Think about what you really want and go for it. Once you’re focus is on something you’re passionate about everything else will begin to make sense. Show the people you love how much you love them. Spend time getting to know YOU. Write your feelings down. Figure out what’s making you feel lost and fix that shit. You do have control and people do care. Once you’re in a better frame of mind, that will all become a lot more clear.Kristin Says:
It could also be because you are looking for “care” in only one form.
I am a person who cares about things and feelings and people and moments and all the things all the time, and I love that about myself. I also know that sometimes I fall victim to expecting people to express their care for me or about me or for life in the same ways that I express my own care.
Let me clarify a little more. When I care about a person I tell them 40 – 178 times each day. When my sister cares about someone she gives them the middle finger. When my mom cares about someone she sends them an e-card with dramatic music. When my best friend cares about someone she says a few succinct phrases that convey her love. People care all the time and in hundreds of thousands of different ways – and so, when you look for the compassion of others, you have to look in the nuances of their behavior.
Not everyone is going to care all of the time, but everyone cares some of the time – and a lot of us care most of the time. It is easy to be discouraged by a world that communicates values based on monetary possessions and superficial looks. It is easy to get overwhelmed. I can tell you, though, as a person who goes about every day of my life being kind and expressing my care for other human beings – those actions open up the care and compassion in others that hinges just on people being their best selves.
You may have just gotten a little lost, and that is completely understandable. Try to listen to us, though, because we can promise you that people do care. Most of them just need the chance to show you.
