When you really think about it, despite all genders and races, we are all human beings that need to be there for each other. This is why being caring and loving is a must, especially nowadays with everything going on. But here is the thing: how do you really know if you are a caring person?
Well, you helped that homeless man that other day and listened to a friend last night who was in trouble. But is that enough? Do you want to know how to be a loving person? Or in better words, a more caring person. Read on to learn more about caring and how to develop compassion for others.
1. Sincerely ask how people are.
We always ask people how they are and how they feel as soon as we see them. But let’s be honest; the way we ask is more of a polite gesture than a serious question. You want to be more caring? Ask people how they are, and truly mean it. Of course, you shouldn’t harass them with repeated questions till they tell you, you have to respect everyone’s wishes if they want to share or not. But in any case, when you develop an interest in their lives means you will develop compassion, and it will mean so much to them, knowing they have a caring person by their side who is ready to listen and help.
2. Be aware of people’s needs.
Another way to be caring is by paying attention and being observant of other people’s needs. Many people are too shy to ask for help. For instance, if you noticed that your coworker hasn’t been bringing food, snacking only on bread or whatever they can find, then maybe they are dealing with sensitive financial issues, and it would be wonderful if you share or brought extra food for them. A few might consider it a bit rude, but it’s nothing but a caring gesture that will help someone in need.
3. Use social media for good.
Do you use your Facebook to share your OOTD and thoughts on politics? Maybe you should also use it to connect with other people who are far from you. These tough times taught us how important it is to stay connected, especially that face-to-face conversations are, now, dangerous. Be caring by finding out how they are doing and actively encourage them to share their troubles with you. Even if you are hundreds of miles away, you can still be there for them. Plus, technology made everything easier, so what’s stopping you from clicking a few times on your smartphone and typing an honest “let me be there for you” right now?
