First off, this post may seem a little self centered but it’s my thoughts right now. I’m a firm believer in giving and helping others. I don’t believe it should be done with ulterior motives. Yet, there are times I’ve done things for people who would never return the favor. It would be so cool to make an emotional investment and to have a return on it. There are times I just cut my losses but I wish I didn’t have to do that all the time. That there was an alternative that worked in my favor. But oh well.
