Well, do you? And if you don’t does that make you a bad person?
I spend a lot of time in the social media world where “caring” and “helping” is the “BIG THING”, but what I sense is that much of the caring and helping is not genuine. I’m not trying to knock anyone, it’s just an observation; my belief is that the same thing occurs offline too.
So the question is, if you don’t care, is that okay? I say yes. We can’t ALL care about EVERYTHING, it’s just not possible. And to be honest, if I have a question or I need help, I would prefer that the people with passion about the subject come forward and the people that could careless stay silent.
From the other side, I love jumping in to help people when it comes to stuff I know or am familiar with, and I would say that comes across to people in the social media realm as well as offline. I genuinely do give a damn when it comes to being able to properly care, help, or guide someone…but you can’t get upset if you approach someone, ask for help, and they turn you down; it is probably in your best interest!
Caring and helping, I believe are expected by people but do you really want “fake” help? I don’t, I want someone who is in it because they breathe it, they feel it; there is nothing else they’d rather do right than other than help.
My takeaways, for those of you that get pissed when someone does not help, calm down because it is probably for the best. And for those that find themselves not giving a damn in a certain instance, no worries, your time of helping someone and caring are right around the corner.
So goes life, cheers!
