Why I Don’t Care About What is Going on with the State of the World
By Crystal Warren
May peacefulness and joy be more than just a dream to you. May they guide your heart and spirit in everything you do.Native American Proverb
Truth be told, I don’t care what’s going on with the state of the world.
I don’t care about who won whatever election.
Or what celebrity is launching the latest makeup kit.
I don’t care about the screaming headlines.
I don’t care about whatever fad is trendy next.
Do you want to know what I care about?
I care about you.
I care about your heart.
I care about my heart.
I care about all of the hearts still beating, despite the sorrow weighing them down.
I care about your joy and happiness.
I care about your sadness and your loneliness.
I care that you feel abandoned and hurt.
I care about how you prioritize yourself and your needs.
I care about spreading love and peace.
I care about the fact that society doesn’t make room for loss and grief.
I care that we are too concerned with extending life as long as possible over enjoying life as much as possible.
I care about having a calm, regulated nervous system over constant stimuli.
I care about maintaining a balanced wellbeing: spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally.
I care about sharing the things we feel too ashamed to say aloud.
I care about helping others.
I care about your heart. I care about your spirit. I care about you.
I care about the peace and joy you bring with everything you do.
When people ask me, “why don’t you care what’s going on in the world? “
I say, “Because I care about you more.”
What do you care about?
