“Things are only real after one has learned to agree on their realness. What took place this evening, for instance, cannot possibly be real to you, because no one could agree with you about it. ‘Do you mean that you didn’t see what happened?’. Of course I did. But I don’t count. I am the one who’s lying to you, remember?”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

No Care

n

Over the past few months I’ve had a concentrated share of interactions with service providers (mostly in an effort to disassociate myself from them as much as possible). I have interacted with a diversity of service providers online and offline, long and short relationships … all kinds. Across the board I have encountered what I can only describe as a systemic lack of care.

I’ve encountered aggression, ignorance (both the stupid and no response kinds), inefficiency, mechanized (insensitive and usually useless). There seems to be a drastic shortage of care or awareness that a service is being provided. There is something cold and distant at best … at other times it seems to be a part of a systemic approach geared towards entrapment and exploitation.

I suppose this is both a fault of existing service providers and an opportunity for future ones. Lack of care drains everyone involved (except maybe stake-holders who continue to profit in the presence of abuse). Care nourishes everyone involved. There has to be caring.
