Is it normal to not care about others?
I mean, for people I don’t know. I don’t see any reason why I should care about someone I don’t even know. And I don’t say it to be mean, like, I’ll pretend to care and stuff so I don’t hurt someone’s feelings. I just can’t make myself care for someone.
And it’s bad sometimes I guess. Because I question if I even care about my own family or even love them. Because I can’t feel it. And I guess that’s part of the reason why I’m single as well. I had people who liked me and stuff... but I never felt anything back. And I didn’t want to date them if I didn’t love them, ya know? That would be wrong. It would just hurt them.
I feel like I have the inability to feel those two things. For example.. my pet I had for a few years died in my arms a month ago and I felt nothing... I want to believe deep down inside I do care but I just can’t feel it. I believe deep down inside I loved that cat. I would spend time with her a lot and always took care of her. I guess I showed the cat love and care without really feeling it myself. I never neglected her or anything. So I guess I do care. But her death didn’t seem to really faze me. And I’m still questioning why. Same with when a family member died before. I didn’t care about that either. It was my uncle who died and we were pretty close. He raised me through half my childhood and lived with us. I seriously don’t know why I can’t feel anything for it. It’s really concerning to me.
And other things that I don’t care about, I don’t bother to even give any attention too. I guess those things are what I truly don’t care about.
