Sometimes when we are not appreciated, our voices are not heard, surrounding people are not showing empathy, we tend to feel lonely and useless. Then, we feel that we mean nothing to “the universe” revolving around us.

Who cares about what I do? Who cares about what I read, do or wear? Who cares about what I think? Who cares that the birds are singing, the weather is changing or who got married or died? The statement of “who cares” can be continued in many different forms. This is a characteristic expression commonly used to describe the representatives of younger generation likely to have been underappreciated by others.
