When You Care

 
I believe you can take care of other people only when you are truly concerned about them. An exception may be when you are a caregiver by profession. But again, you can truly be honest in the same when you empathize with those who need your care.

Families spend years together under the same roof, without feeling any real connect with each other. So called friends may hang out together everyday, yet remain oblivious to each others’ lives. Why some people are capable of offering help without being asked, while others are able to overlook when the other person clearly needs help? I believe the answer lies in genuine concern and kindheartedness. 

A person who loves his/her family and friends to bits, even when his/her love and concern is not cent percent reciprocated, he/she will bear all hardships for them. And a kindhearted person will always be able to empathize with your pain, sorrow and hardship. Such people are always ready to lend you a helping hand, even when you don’t ask for it. There are so few people who genuinely care about other people, about their well-being without an ulterior motive. They check on you from time to time, even if you don’t care a fig about them. They genuinely care about you, and that makes all the difference.

Then there are the others with magnanimous hearts, the kindhearted. They embrace humanity at large, offer their selfless service to the lesser privileged. They care about other living souls with a sense of empathy and genuine love.
 
It is only when you care about someone, that you can feel the burn of their pain as well as the warmth of their happiness. Your genuine concern lets you see when they need support. It enables you to go ahead and lend a helping hand without being asked, to take care of them with an open heart and with open limbs. They will not need to ask for your help because you will reach out to them on your own. The fact that you care will reflect in your words and your action. When you love and care about someone, it will manifest in kindness and empathy. 

If I care about you, I will be kind to you in the simplest of ways. It may simply mean getting you a glass of water or simply asking how you are doing.  It is as simple as that.
