Whenever we do something for someone, we believe we’re giving. Sometimes we are. But sometimes, we’re actually giving with the hope that in the future that person will reciprocate.
True giving is when we give our time, money, or things, with absolutely no expectation of receiving anything in return. We’re not looking for a thank you, a future favor, or even to make ourselves feel good, although this is a natural by-product of giving.
The next time you give, do it without expectations and you’ll benefit from an instant happiness booster.
