    Default Do you care how others feel?

    I guess this is an NF type topic.
    How much do you care how others feel?
    In light of the idea that you can't control how others feel, how much should you really care?

    Frankly, I enjoy caring about others... But there are times when I decide NOT to give a darn. Actually, I am leaning towards the understanding that in caring about my own feelings, its best to focus on them, and let others manage their own emotions...

    Sometimes it feels like being a bad guy, but it seems important to staying happy.

    Any ideas, thoughts, feelings?

    Define "care."

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    i care how others feel about me
    i am a little immature in that sense, need validation and am sensitive when people close to me criticize me (though i can be quite critical myself, especially to those close to me)
    i really want to do well in the eyes of those close to me

    I generally place myself in a larger context than 'me' regarding both thoughts and feelings. I prefer to see a better net result than simply a personal one. I do care about the well being of others because it is clear I am not all that separate from them. Their well being and mine are intricately interlaced.

    I care how the people I care for feel, and even that is on a sliding scale.

    I do care how I feel. (But you didn't ask that.)

    1. You can control how others feel to some, or even to a great extent. It's all psychology. And I think everyone should care a lot how others feel.
    2. It's not always right when you let others feel good about themselves.
