Who cares!!! It’s a phrase that every one of us has probably used at one time or another. Frustration, worry, anxiety and even anger are usually the emotions that we are feeling when we say it. Rebellion against authority and apathy towards certain situations definitely apply to the “who cares!!!” crowd too.
Often times when we say it with those kind of emotions it is with 100% sarcasm and an answer is the last thing we’re looking for. But what about when the sarcastic “who cares!!!” attitude turns into a “who cares???” question? Most of us have probably been there too. We all face pressures. We have our problems. We may think no one cares at all. But we all have someone who cares whether we realize it or not.
