Thought Questions, day 111: When you help someone do you ever think, “What’s in it for me?”

I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!

Day 111: When you help someone do you ever think, “What’s in it for me?” I don’t want to sound like a bighead, but no. It isn’t how I was raised and I really try to consciously avoid looking at life through that lens. I think that if you’re only doing something charitable because of the return then it isn’t really charity at all.

    1. I think that’s kind of common for everyone. It’s always nice to think the person appreciated you. I’ve seen people try to help others and the recipient is ungrateful or downright rude, and it’s such a bummer!
