Is it wrong to expect the same?
Expectations are what that keeps us running. Everything we do, we expect something and based on our expectations we perform our tasks. It is a kind of hope and it helps to reach our goals.
In order to expect something you will have to do something first and you should not expect without doing anything. Also, it is not like that you need to expect something from everything you do, there are many things that we do or should do without expecting anything. And be prepared because you will not get everything that you will expect.
I always expect the same behavior or response from others that I give to them. I think all of us except the same. And is it not a bad thing, if you’re giving good response to someone in the need you will expect the same. I always try to give a better response to people and hope that they will remember this in my need. I respond to people by putting myself in their situation with the thought that I may also get into this type of situation someday and they will support me. Some people say THANK YOU or something nice and forget, but some people remember with or without saying thank you. Even though not getting a response from someone in need, I try to help them out again the second time in the hope for expecting the same again for myself if needed. But it does not always happens as expected.
So, I think we should give a genuine response to the people in need and try to meet their expectations set by their response to you in those type of situations. Every time it hurts that you are not getting something expected from someone, but without losing hope or expectation you just go on the next time as well.
