CARING – THE NURTURING
WHAT IS CARING?
Caring according to me is displaying kindness and concern for others. When you care for someone, you are showing your concerned feelings for someone. Caring can also be termed as the practice of looking after those who are unable to care for themselves, especially on account of age or sickness. Caring for someone is way out of our emotional feelings for the concerned person. When we love someone our mind auto generates caring attitude.
There is famous saying-
“A man may rule the world for a time.
But by virtue of love and kindness,
He may rule the world forever.”
While “caring” encompasses a wide variety of things, and can take on many different forms, there is one aspect of it that, no matter what configuration it has assumed, is invariable: it is always there, present in all that surrounds us and everything we do. Caring is the axis, around which each of our individual world revolve. It is the first step towards motivating factor behind our actions, it drives us to achieve the greatest feats, and it serves as the basis for all of our positive interactions and relations with others.
It is one of the most beautiful virtues; one must adopt to adorn his/her personality. While you care for others around you, you generate positive vibes and positive circle around you. Caring arouses others to bless you and gives you meaning & purpose for life. I believe if you focus on other’s needs, universe takes care of your needs. Caring is the most important feeling.
In a world where our purpose and what exactly we are supposed to be doing with our lives is about as clarion as a monsooning sky, one of the only things in which we can find comfort and meaning is care. Caring is what drives our actions, pushes us to accomplish greater things, and is the foundation for our social interactions.To be caring is to be concerned about the well-being of others and sympathetic towards their needs and struggles. A caring person is someone who asks “How are you?” with the intention of getting a truthful response, someone who helps an old man pick up his cane after seeing others pass by without regard, and someone who is willing to sacrifice their time in order to help others ..
I would like to share my experience of my college life that made me learn a beautiful lesson of caring and sharing. During my second year of college our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school? Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. Absolutely, the professor said. In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello. I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
A caring person is someone who is willing to take time out of their life on a daily basis in order to help others improve their own. They are not only considerate of other people’s feelings, but they also share in other’s ups and downs. The characteristics of a caring person includes, compassionate, respectful, trustworthy, and generous.
Yet, these characteristics do not fully define the true meaning of a caring person. A caring person should not only be recognized by their characteristics, but also by their actions. Caring is being compassionate and supporting people as they go through tough times. Caring is helping others in time of needs.
So my dear readers, caring is a good trait for everyone to have and the world will be a better place if we care for one another.
There’s actually nothing wrong with caring too much. But I guess you want to do that for the right people, right..?
