    Who or what do you care most about?

    May be a tough choice, but choose one you care MOST about.

    To make things more interesting, list the top ones you would choose in a post. Feel free to add anything I didn't include.

    For me:
    1. The planet / ecosystem as a whole
    2. The human race as a whole
    3. My family and friends
    4. Myself
    5. My country

    Without a doubt my family and myself come first.

    Everything else can be interchangeable for certain and specific reasons.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You got the order wrong. You may think to yourself that it's right, but it really isn't.
    #4 comes first for absolutely everyone.
    #3 comes second for pretty much all decent people.

    Well we need a planet and ecosystem in order to sustain life.
    And we need the human race to thrive in order to survive longer and create an atmosphere where our kids and grand kids can survive.

    So yes family, friends and myself are very important to me.

    Re: Who or what do you care most about?

    It is a hard question!
    I am hovering between 'the human race as a whole' and 'my family and friends'.

    Caring about the human race as a whole might be way too energy consuming, and almost a lost cause and many humans dont care about me or my issues or my family, so I should tune out the world and just concentrate on myself and my family. But, I do care about the human race without wanting to, which is why I take an interest in politics.
