This piece is an old thought, which was in my draft.. publishing it now..
"I care.." where does the boundarry line start for this statement.. where does it end? Is there a boundary somewhere? Some people make such an explicit statement of this, and some have subtle expressions. And the rest don't care. How much of showing will actually pass on the message? Does it always have to be expressed in words? What if one had caring thoughts, but never said it or expressed it, would any value be attached to it or would that be equivalent to 'don't care'? Expressions! The true soul of existence.. ?
What do you say to a person who tells you that you don't care? Would you reiterate "No I really do" or cite examples from everyday happenings to demonstrate how you cared for the person? Or would you rethink, do I really care? But if you do care then why was the question posed to you in the first place? And thats exactly where you start going in circles...
Go figure out, do you really care for the people who you ought to care for? Or the people who think that you care about them? Or are you really passing the message to the people whom you care for? The answer is simple, as long as you don't show your affection in the way the receiver percieves the word 'care', you simply don't care... whatever you do doesn't matter.
