When I saw @loneyghost.co working on this campaign, it made me so happy & weirdly understood? It’s hard to explain … but I’ll try ————
My entire life, I have been told to “stop caring” & “you’re too nice to ~X~ they obviously don’t care” or asked, “why do you care about ~X~ so much?” — LITERALLY I DON’T KNOW! WHY DON’T YOU CARE?!?! – is what my brain would be screaming at the person I was talking to. Why did it ever become the more accepted thing NOT to care?! How is it fun to go through life without passion, hobbies, deep friendships, & bonds? Why would you stop yourself from learning and exploring everything this world & the people around you have to offer?!
It has never made sense to me. So when I saw this campaign, I was like, “Wow…Thank God I’m not the only one who loves to care.”
Sadly, I spent my youth trying to repress all the care I had for the people around me and the things I wanted to do in life because it was NOT COOL, and I couldn’t relate to anyone since they were too busy caring about nothing. Why?! Who the fuck started that?!
I care, SO. FUCKING. MUCH. About everyone, everything. I am constantly sad, thinking I have no friends or no one likes me when in reality, just no one cares. No one cares as much as I do about others. I’m not the weird one; they are.
This particular blog topic could probably turn into a short book, so maybe it’s time to quit while I’m ahead.
