It can be a tenuous balance between not caring and caring too much, but which one is more damaging? Which is worse? I think that in this day and age it has become a seen as a sign of weakness to show any sort of emotion at all. In the midst of the cyber age, we need to take a step back and think about what's really important in life. Technology is a tool that helps us with our daily lives, but there's no need for technology if we don't live our daily lives in the first place.
I'm here to tell you that caring too much is Okay, you know why? Because it means you have a big heart! Here are 5 reasons why it really is great to care too much...
This can be seen from both sides of the coin: on one hand, wearing our heart's on our sleeves can lead us to become vulnerable to other peoples opinions, and often leaves us questioning our own mind, body and soul. This can be damaging.
However, on the flip side: We have big hearts. We love hard, dream big and protect those we care about fiercely. Having a kind heart is one of the great virtues of life, as it allows us to see past peoples minor flaws and really appreciate the good in a person. We are loving, caring and show empathy when others cannot.
2. We Value Our Relationships
There are some people who prefer quantity over quality when it comes to friendships, and they will have 50 acquaintances and friends that make them feel popular, but no real best friends. We however pick our relationships more carefully, this stems from the worry of what people will think and say about us. It may take us a lot longer to talk to someone, strike up a conversation or accept an invitation to that party...
But when we do finally make a friend, we keep them for life. And if the ever need advice, a shoulder to cry on, or just someone to sit at home and have a cup of tea with- we're perfect for the job!
When you are the type of person that notices every single little thing... it's easy to notice the good in people and in the world. We notice those birds singing in the morning, that couple kissing in the park, and the countless small gestures of kindness people perform throughout the day. These things make us see the world positively, and that's a great thing to be able to do.
Of course, being able to feel vividly makes us able to express our emotions and feelings in a variety of ways... whether it be escaping into fiction; creating a masterpiece; or making stunning music... we are good at making our emotional minds into beautiful creations.
Caring about those we love, makes us much more determined to succeed in life. Not only to follow our own dreams, but to support our family and friends, to make a beautiful and stable life for the ones we love.
And now I will leave you with a little quote- and remember, you can never care too much!
