UNLESS SOMEBODY IS DIRECTLY COMPETING WITH YOU (and it’s a zero sum game), EVERYBODY WHO INTERACTS WITH YOU (in their own way, often for their own selfish reasons):

A) DOESN’T NOTICE YOU, or B) BARELY NOTICES YOU, or C) DOESN’T CARE/IS NEUTRAL ABOUT YOU, or D) WANTS YOU TO BE SUCCESSFUL (so that, in turn, they can get what they want more easily). Charles Tadros, M.D. May 31, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri

ONE OF THE MORE FRUSTRATING ASPECTS OF CARING IS THAT YOU TRY TO NOTICE AND TO HELP OTHERS WHO SEEM TO BE DROWNING, BUT, WHEN IT IS YOUR TURN,OTHERS DO NOT SEEM TO BE ABLE TO DO THE SAME FOR YOU.
