If you are going to think, “Why don’t they do for me as much as I have done for them?” Then do not do it in the first place. Or give only so much that you won’t expect something in return. If you feel the need to have a gesture reciprocated, the relationship will start to feel uncomfortable. by Haemin Sunim
Such a good teaching!!!
Do and give willingly without any expectation in return. You are going to be a happy people. If you are keep calculating and expecting, you are going to bring “hell” in your life. You are creating a lot “unhappy stories” in your mind and this play will keep arisen. Eventually, you are destroying your own peace and causing suffering in life.
