Why do we give to others?
Is it to make them feel better? Or to make us feel better?
What do we expect in return? A smile? A kind word? Or in certain cases even reciprocity at some point in time? We probably prefer not to admit it, yet I believe we always expect something.
Whatever the answer may be, I think it is an interesting topic worth thinking about. And please bear in mind that “giving” encompasses more than just material items.
