Nobody really cares about your existence but they will pretend. Oh sure, they will pretend. But why? Because they need people to (pretend to) care about them, too. Why? Why? Why? It is simple. Human beings are fragile creatures with needy desires for foolish emotions like love. And in the end we are all alone because the people who told us they cared, lied, because they too are human, selfish, and desperate to feel loved.
