When I am lucky enough to be able to do something for someone, it makes me happy to see them happy. Often we confuse this with the idea that the giver now thinks that they are somehow ‘better’ than us by doing this; a one-up, if you will. I have been a receiver and a giver, and in my opinion, both are great and equally satisfying. But being a giver now and then, able to give someone something with your whole heart, expecting nothing back; is absolutely wonderful.
Try to keep this mind the next time someone offers you a kindness. And while you’re thinking on that, please remember that so many of us are also doing our best to do the same. Hopefully we will all come to realize that there truly is no wrong way to do a right thing.
