Caring versus Codependency

I care. I care about people. I care about what other people think. I care about what other people think of me. I care about what other people think of me because I desire for them to understand that I care.

I struggle to find the balance between caring - the detached love of self and others - and codependency - the attachment to control of others and the loss of self.

People are inherently afraid of that which they do not know. Fear is the opposite of love. So to know is to love.
