Sometimes it’s easy to fall into the trap of expecting others to react in ways similar to what we might. Perhaps you extended your assistance, offered advice, gave a gift, went out of your way for them…. and the return on your investment was zero, nada, nothing. As a result, we find ourselves feeling disappointment, frustration, and at times, anger. All these thoughts drain our energy, focus our attention on trying to change something of which we have no control over, and block out room for the good stuff in our lives.
What is behind this? Is it a need for control? Are we inadvertently trying to ignore our own issues by focusing on what we perceive to be the fault and mishaps of others? How about making a conscious choice today to only do for others what your heart says yes to, because you truly WANT to… but with absolutely no strings attached… no expectation of a “payback?” Don’t you feel lighter already? Have a wonderful day!
