The task for the next week

  • Step one. Recall two different cases from your life when you did something good to another person but didn’t receive anything good in return, and it hurt you somehow.
  • The second step. Imagine: what would be the best arrangement in a similar situation? How should the deal look like?
  • The third step. Analyze whether you have cases right now when you give something to another person. How can you save yourself from negative emotions in the future if the person will turn his/her back on you? Decide: should you make an arrangement, or should you accept the future when you’ll get nothing from the person like you did nothing good?
