This the fact that life is for once and then who knows what will come next! Well everybody is at liberty to adopt the life style and do what he/she wants to? I know so many people who are busy in doing all the affairs for themselves as well as for their dependents like their children, parents, and other kins. How do you live? A caring one or free style lol. I mean, do you live independtly and without any responsibility or care for others? How do you claim that you are caring? Do you care yourself too?

I am a bit careless for myself because I am student and feel myself to be cared off hehehe But what I suggest in this regard is that one must be careful and caring to others. I do care of my parents and my family. I love my father, I love my neice, nephew too. So I think I can claim that I am caring. Take care! Bye..

I live alone, independently, total responsibilty for my self. My family is grown and I am being a very caring person by not having to make them care for me.

I am a caring person. When my dad was sick I went to be with him. When my mother-in-law is sick I help with her. I take care of my family and also help others. I also take care of myself.

Yes, I am a very caring person, I care how my family and friends are feeling and always try my best to show them that I appreciate them, by doing things for them and talking to them about their problems, I do not think that it is right to only care for yourself and not others as one day you may also need someone special and nobody will be there for you.

Well, you must adhere to your parents if you want to care of yourself, as their advice is always for you and nothings else. Take care and have a nice day!

I believe there are many ways of caring. When my children were at home I cared for them in lots of ways. I care for my spouse by doing things to make life comfortable and less chaotic. I care for my children and grandchildren by remembering their birthdays and doing things with them when we visit. I take care of the house and our "stuff". I care about others by doing volunteer work and by supporting financially the causes I care about. I care about the future of the world by lots of small "green" decisions every day. I care about our country by voting and campaigning for the candidates I believe are best for it. In the past I have cared about my clients, before I retired. But I must admit I'm not nearly as good at caring for myself as I am for others. I often don't eat right, seldom get enough exercise, ignore pain until it is severe, avoid going to the doctor for as long as possible, plan meals around the rest of the family rather than myself, etc. I have a problem saying "no" when someone needs something done and they ask me to do it. So I often become over-committed and wear myself out - which is what is happening now. With Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia I know better than to overdo. And yet I do. I'm now paying for having done that in the past couple of weeks and am really feeling bad these days. And I have two more sizeable committments of energy this weekend before I am somewhat more able to feel free to relax completely. I don't know if I will ever learn to not overdo when I get so much pleasure from doing things for others.

O dear! You have summerized in a nice manner and I am glad to learn that such considerate the person you are!! I wish you all the best and also suggest to take care of yourself too because if you are not good, you can never perform good too :) Thanks for your input and have a nice day!

Well i live in the both way. When i am with my friend, i mostly be a free style one. But at the same time when i have someone with me, then i be free style one and also a caring one. I feel that we shouldnt be the same always. We should try out everything in our life, so that in future we dont feel for it!

i believe that i am caring.. and i can be one if i want.. i don't think i really care abou myself.. i think one shouldn't be too selfish to care on himself only.. we should sacrifice to care for others.. that sounds better.. well.. i do know some people disagree with me.. they think you have to learn to care bout yourself first before caring about others.. right? i don't know.. many different type of people has different opinion.. i still stick to my own principle.. sacrifice for others.. and i sacrifice without asking for return.. as long as they're happy.. then i feel i'm worth living here =)

i think i am a very careing person. i always put others before myself. i always help others when i can. i love to see other people happy and not struggle in life. me and my mom and sister struggled in life alot and i know how it is. so i try and do whatever i can so others dont have to. i care for myself also but i think i care for others more.

I have too many responsibilities to be able to live a carefree lifestyle. I have a family to take care of, a household to run, bills to deal with, and friends to keep in touch with. Maybe if I was single with no kids, it could be a 'semi carefree' life, but there would still be me to take care of, as well as bills and other necessities of life.
