Caring is an acquired trait. If you are cared for well in your formative years, you are most likely to reciprocate in a manner that stands out. In adulthood, inculcating a habit of caring for others is next impossible. My mother, a trained nurse, was at the helm of teaching us through her own selfless work for others.
I picked it up from the point where she left. Then I learned selfless caring is one and burning oneself for it is entirely another thing. I went too far. I rubbed my skin to make others warm. I burned my time for all of them and in return, they cared less. I always told them “Pass It On”. Yes, there are more needy people out there who need your care.
When they fail to pass it on, I need to make sure that such people are not part of my space. Hence, I decided to shift my caring to someone worthy.
