Understand that people don’t really care the way they say that they do. It’s hard to imagine that they do for you, simply for you. In my opinion it still has to come from a place of selfishness.
It’s that person wanting to help you or care for you. You didn’t ask for anything, they just decided in their mind to help. Maybe I’m wrong.
I think the only way people care for you in the most truest form is by leaving feelings or emotions and reactions completely out of it and moving on quickly to helping the next person.
