You know when you say 'I don't care' but it really means you do care -- you care a lot? Way too much?

Why is that?

Seriously? For me it's because I'm afraid to show my true emotions to others, because of how they may use them against me. Showing how much I actually care is like giving someone a weapon and all the ammunition.

And yes, I often answer questions that arent' meant to be answered, or haven't even been asked.

Word.

I suppose the question I'm really asking is why do I care? And how can I make it stop?

Because you aren't a sociopath. And you can't, but you can redirect the emotion to something else, if you really try.

Because humans fear rejection when saying the truth... or that everything may fall apart and nothing will be the same again.

Drastic changes seem to scare people. A lot.

*shrugs* Us humans are all fucked up.

Well, rejection, yes. Unfortunately not enough to shut me up permanently, but yes.

For me, it's more the terrifying fear that things won't change ... that they'll be stuck like this forever. And I will have to subscribe for life-long membership to Losers, International.

I find that if I pretend not to care for long enough, eventually it becomes the truth. Really though, I'll always be someone who cares too much and I'd rather that than a heartless, indifferent weasel-person.

Not sure if that has any bearing on your question but there you go!

I don't know, it seems like the heartless indifferent weasel people (now that's a great description) have an easier time of life.

I don't know the answer, but I hope that it involves pie in some way. :(

Or glow worms, because they're all I have to hand at midnight. ;D

Truthfully, no, not anymore. I'm too old and cynical, I think, and there aren't a whole lot of things/people I really care about.

Yet another reason I wish I was more like you. [snuggles] I care about everything, from unanswered reviews to starving African children, without having the balls to do anything about any of it.

Send it in chunks, if you don't mind. It'll be easier to correct so.

Good!!

Because I don't want people to have to go to unnecessary trouble for me.
