can you care too much?

It was a shock to hear someone say that a particular individual cared too much for someone.  The statement provoked me into thinking around why someone could use this in a negative way – is it really possible to care too much?

My thoughts led me to believe that the accuser had a wrong interpretation of the word “care” – it is not possible to care too much, if  care demands that you do the best for someone.  The accuser was wrong, if there was a problem, the better accusation should be “you do not care enough”, then it would make sense.

It is not possible to care too much for anyone!
