WELCOME THE CARING SPIRIT
We evolved to care for others
Science tells us that as a species, we evolved into more caring human beings. If we had not, we would not have survived. Our growing ability to cooperate and recognize when others needed help allowed us to work together at the business of surviving and, ultimately, to thriving. Taking care of each other is what got us here and it is an innate part of who we are.
We learned to keep caring
As humans, we thrive when we have a strong sense of belonging to a group and when we feel a connection to something bigger than ourselves. We suffer when we feel we do not belong, or we do not feel connected. And while much of the motivation for caring people report is altruistic—it is simply what we are called to do—there are rewards: Caring for others feels good. It is fulfilling. It improves our quality of life. When we feel heard we feel understood and can then better connect with someone else.
We care for others in different ways
When it comes to how we care, the ways we do it are as individual as we are. Performing unbidden acts of service says, “I care about you” without uttering a word. We can help lighten another’s load through shared laughter, a helping hand or an out of the blue kindness. Caring, while often a very personal exchange, can also be exhibited by supporting causes through donations of time or money. Pitching in on a group effort can magnify the effects of your caring efforts and impact people’s lives in effective and even life-changing ways.
Caring is who we are
It is how we flourish. And it can be personally validating to be known as a caring person. We feed our own need for meaning and recognition as we help fill the needs of others. There is really no downside to thoughtful caring—and the benefits are profound.
