    I’ve lived the last 20 yrs caring about others, putting the needs of others before mine, not worrying if I was ever cared about just making sure others felt cared about.  I see  and hear such quotes and statements all over.  I disagree now.  Now I’m drained, starved for compassion and care I’ve hardly received my whole life from anyone but always giving.  It does feel good to give, but it doesn’t heal or take away that yearning hurt to feel, be, have the assurance I’m cared about.  Have you heard of compassion fatigue?  The Bible says, love one another, bear one another’s burdens, love your neighbor “as yourself”.  We all have a need to be cared about and need to find people to care about us too.  I’m now searching for more caring people who will exhange care and kindness not just me giving.  It feels good to give to those who could never repay, but how many people could care too not just take?  I helped a crippled homeless man the other day.  It felt awesome!  I expected nothing from him.  But he gave me the greatest gift anyone has ever given me in a long time.  Like a father or a grandpa, as I went back to my car, he said, “be careful”, “drive safe” 3 times.  Those words ring in my ears over and over, words that someone cared.  He didn’t have anything to give but gave everything I needed.
