Passion Party #315 - Reciprocity

I believe in the Law of Reciprocity:
When you give something to someone
they feel a need to return the favor.

I guess there are those narcissists out there
for whom this is not true.
There are people that will spend hours talking about themselves, and when they are done say,
"Well, enough about me. How about you?
What do you think about me?"

But for most people
leading with the giving hand
creates a relationship based on friendship,
not on "I owe you".
I believe in the willingness to watch out for the other guy.
In doing that, my interests will always be taken care of.

Kindness and generosity will be returned in kind
it is human nature
it is the law of reciprocity.
