Last week during my visit to Delhi for my speaking gig a student named Ravi requested me to spare few minutes for him to discuss his problem after the workshop. I said Ravi that there are still 20 minutes left for the start of the workshop, he can discuss his problem now if he feel comfortable. Ravi replied, “Sir, I would like to discuss the problem after the workshop”. He further added please allot me a time. After listening this I allotted him 15 minutes after the workshop.
When Ravi shared his problem I realized that this problem has not only affected many students like Ravi but in fact almost every person is becoming the victim of this problem. This is the only reason that today I am sharing this incident for the benefit of the society.
Ravi asked me, “Sir, I have always helped my friends in fact I have supported them in every possible way that I could but still when I need them they cut corners from me as a result our relationship is affected”. How I can save our relationship at this crucial moment? So that I should not left alone in the society.
I replied, “Thank you very much Ravi for trusting me to share this problem. Here are my views on your problem”. Always remember:
“Never compare your relations with what you have done for them, you will get in return”.
Most people easily come out from a relation if what they have given does not equal to what they have got. In other words don’t become an expectation addict. In fact develop a character that stops you from becoming an expectation addict.
After listening this Ravi thanked me for helping him out and promised him that he will never become an expectation addict and always nourish his relations selflessly.
