Care Vs. Love

The Line between Care and Love

It is sometimes bothering how our feelings deceive us. At times it’s just hard to identify certain reactions that our body relays to us, leading to some kind of misinterpretations that somehow alter our perception about how we feel towards a person. You love because you care or you care because you love? It is just so confusing. So for us to understand more about these two, let us try to explore its meanings and try to find out how one be related to the other one.

Love and care are two of the most complicated feelings among all human emotions. They usually go with each other for you cannot love a person without caring for him. The two words most often cause confusion not only to those who read it but also for those who feel it.

Care can either be a noun or a verb referring to the act of giving concern or interest to someone or to something. It could also be associated to the act of rendering comfort or simply attending to someone who is sick or ill. You may be able to feel such emotion to everyone. Usually you care more about your family, friends and even your pet; however this feeling is not just concentrated to those whom you may know. You can certainly care for somebody you have only met or even for someone you only saw in a moment. Care is simply showing concern to somebody. So when you feel like someone or something concerns you, definitely you care for it,

Love on the other hand is either a noun or a verb pertaining to an intense feeling of passion, intimacy and personal attachment towards a person. Its concept is broad that sometimes it tackles concepts related to care as for caring is always a manifestation of someone’s love.  You always care for the person you love but you cannot always love a person you may care about. Caring for somebody does not always mean loving that someone but loving someone also means caring for him.

Both emotions may now seem different but we need these emotions to establish a healthy relationship towards or fellow people.
