The Way I See It... Caring


Hey guys! Thank you so much for the positive reaction the posts I have written previously in this series, it is great to know that you care about what I'm writing. Today I'm going to be talking about the definition of caring. This is one of the most important traits for a friend to have and I try to be a caring person. Even though this word is pretty commonly used, it means a lot to me.

According to the dictionary, caring means "displaying kindness and concern for others." This is a pretty good round up of what the word means, but I think that only really covers the surface of the word. It doesn't show the grateful smiles and the real, warm hugs.

Caring, in my opinion, is being concerned for the people you love. It's making sure they're happy as often as possible. It's sitting down with them and just listening to all of their problems. It's taking them seriously  It's giving your best friend a present that relates to an inside joke. It's making sure not to call their step-dad their dad just because they mentioned that it annoys them. It's all the things that people outside of those close relationships would miss. They don't have to be big things but they sure make you feel thought-about. It's the things that make you feel like you're not alone, the things that make you feel like somebody's there for you.

I am lucky to have a lot of people that care about me in my life, but you might not feel that lucky, they are always people to care for you but you just need to open up to them. If you feel alone and you are scared to trust somebody, why not start with somebody who you have never met in your life? An internet friend! You are all very welcome to send me an email telling me your problems or just having a good chat.

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading! Is being a caring friend something you think about often? What do you do to be a caring friend? Tell me in the comments. Until next Friday, byeee.

  3. I totally agree! I think caring is one of the best traits any person could have, no matter who they are or what they do otherwise. People who care are honestly the best people in the world because you know they will be there for you no matter what, or when or why or whatever the circumstance it! This post is so lovely!
