Caring is the display of kindness and concern for others. Caring is the work or practice of looking after those unable to care for themselves especially sick and elderly people. These are the typical things people think of when the topic is caring. It is integrated into our society to be caring and considerate of others and to also act upon this idea. But to me caring means pushing someone to be their best, supporting them in the best way possible, and being understanding. I plan on manifesting this in my life through my personality, future career, and current job.

When you care for someone you want them to be their best whether it’s a parent-child, friend-to-friend or a relationship. My mother pushes me to be my best academically and in my personal life. I push my boyfriend to be his best in football. My mother and I don’t do this out of love, although it may be a part of it; we do it because we care. Caring is supporting someone in the best way possible. My teachers care about me; they show concern about my life and try to help me. Although they may not agree with some of the choices I make, they still support me and try to positively influence me. Lastly caring is being understanding. To care about someone deeply you need to have an open mind so that you can understand them and accept them for who they are. Sometimes this proves to be very difficult. My sister does the craziest things sometimes that cause a lot of chaos and I honestly don’t understand what goes through her head. Over time I’ve accepted it but with me accepting it I started to understand why she does it. All these are qualities and ultimately the idea of caring.

I plan on manifesting caring through my personality, my future career, and my current job. I’m a very caring person and I express it every day. When my friends are hungry, no matter how hungry I am, I will give them some of my food because I care about them and their well-being. In the future I want to become a psychologist. I would love to help high schoolers just like me because I know how hard high school is especially junior year. I would like to be the person kids can go talk to without having repercussions. My current job is a tutor. To be a tutor you have to develop a close bond to best help the student. You also have to be understanding. Doing this allows me to understand how they think and use this to figure out the best way to teach them. The more you care the more affected the student usually is. I will continue to tutor and show kids that people care and want the best for them.

Caring is more than just kindness. It’s very complex, once you truly care for someone it takes your time and energy. Many people have committed their lives to things just because they care whether it’s to society, people, or even the environment. When more people care and act upon it, I have no doubt that the world will be a better place.
