Have you ever been stuck in your room with your endless thoughts about life, friends or even about yourself ? Have you ever been paralyzed and barely have the strength to pick up the phone that didn’t stop ringing since several days? Or have you ever felt like everyday was like yesterday?
This anxiety and melancholy consume us everyday, yet we feed it and let it spread all over our bodies until we become alienated from our authenticity. We loose our innocence as well as our kindness that we always wanted to share.
Every bleak night, we launch an eternal battle between the good we have and the bad imposed on us. This war ends with a ruined battlefield, but there is no winner announced. It is endless, tiring and deadly.
Next morning, we wake up with a haggard face so pale that sunlights won’t touch it. Shrunken lips that haven’t tasted water since a while and a body that has been devastated by our own hands. Therefore, We ask that frequently coming question..
Does it worth?
In fact, it doesn’t. Giving a lot of attention to things which are toxic in our lives, is already a waste of energy. We care about our Instagram posts, our ex friends, a word we heard, unanswered text ,or simply a person who acted cruelly towards us.
However, we always expect to receive as much as we gave, but we end up disappointed by the fact that we didn’t receive a thing. We set high hopes on imaginary things, therefore they become our downfall. This doesn’t mean that we have to stop caring about these things. Indeed, we have to bear the pain and deal with it as a part of our journey in this unlimited circle of life.
This doesn’t mean also to avoid sadness or anxiety, yet we live the deeper sorrow so we feel the jubilation. It’s like tasting honey after years of bitterness.
“Why we care so much” is a question that takes us back to question who we are. After we lost ourselves in sadness and caring, we need to take a step back to replenish our spirit. By caring about the utterly meaningful things, awakening our authenticity will be the upshot.
Why we care so much?
