Unpopular Opinion: “In order to get, you have to give”

I bet that at least one time in your life you have heard the saying “in order to get, you have to give”. This is a miserable lie. Personally, I love a lot of people and that does not mean that when they do something for me or me for them, I have to return the favor or they have to return the favor. When you do something out of love or kindness you should not expect something in return, that is not what life is about. First, people will disappoint you when you expect things in return. Do things selflessly and you will genuinely enjoy life without waiting for something or someone to be around your corner. Second, life is about doing things for yourself and those who you love. You don’t owe anything to anyone and no one owes anything to you. If you constantly worry about owing favors or favors that are owed to you, how can you live? How can you actually enjoy every single day of your life when you are constantly mad or disappointed about that person that did not text you back, or that boy that never called you, or that person that simply takes you for granted? Enjoy yourself and those that actually value you, never expect anything from anyone.
