When You’re The One Who Cares Too Much

You get hurt. You feel like you’re the one who gets let down the most. You feel disappointed in people when they don’t do something you would do for them. You let your feelings dictate your emotions, but you can’t help it and there is nothing wrong with it.

There is always one who cares more, there has to be one that cares more. Everyone has experienced times in their life when they are head over heals for someone who merely thinks they are a friend. There are times when its opposite and we can’t stand the person who thinks the world of us. It happens, because someone has to care more.

But honestly, who cares if you’re the person who cares too much and cares more. Why does that have to be a bad thing? Even though you feel like you set yourself up to get hurt sometimes with your big heart and grand expectations it doesn’t make you weak, it makes you strong because you don’t give up. You’re resilient.

You always see the best in people no matter how many times you’ve been broken or let down and that’s freakin’ awesome.

Who cares if you try harder, who cares if you love harder and who cares if you care ‘too much’ because someone is going to fall in love with you over those qualities. They are going to love how you care so deeply about everything. They are going to laugh when you start crying in a movie that wasn’t even sad, but to you it meant something because you think harder about things.

It’s been known that the one who cares less has more power in the relationship and while that might be true to some, I think it’s definitely bullshit. You shouldn’t change who you are. You shouldn’t stop caring to seem cool and to cover up what you’re feeling because that is no way to live.

The way you care so deeply about everything is such a blessing, even if it does feel like a curse from time to time. It allows you to feel everything more and experience moments that others miss out on by covering their emotions. Things mean more to you and that is rare, and you should cherish it.

Stop thinking it’s better to care less or not care at all. The world needs more caring people; the world needs the soul inside of you.

So, care too much because most of the people don’t care at all. Be the person who always follows through with their plans. Keep your promises and words to people because you don’t want to let them down. Be the person who loves unapologetically every single time because the world needs more people who care.

Don’t let the world make you cold because that is the last thing you need is another person who doesn’t give a shit. Be you, wear your heart on your sleeve, scream your emotions from the rooftop, care and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
