Do You Really "Not Care?"
e live in a world filled with many different beliefs and persuasions. In many of the cases, there will be a minority representation.
In those situations, it is not unusual to hear someone say to someone in the minority, "It's okay … I am cool with whatever … I really don't care."
Let's think about that. We think that is a way of showing acceptance and/or support, but is it really?
I've been in a minority situation. The people who said "they were okay with my situation and didn't care" ended up being very apathetic towards me. That hurt.
One person gave support and showed concern. He cared about what I was going through, and did what he could to make me feel as though I was not all alone.
Next time you say you are "okay" with something, and "don't really care," think of the ripple effect. If you truly are okay and accepting of a situation, do care and show support.
This Week's Focus:
This week, when you are with a person representative of a situation you are "okay with" and "accepting of," actually show your care and support them.
