For the record…

When I do something for someone, it’s because I want to. Not because I expect anything in return, for myself or anyone else, other than the satisfaction of helping where I can.

For the record.

  1. I don’t know what caused this, so I can’t comment on the specifics. For the record, though, when someone does something for me I often feel so helpless and unworthy that I try to give it back in whatever way I can, even though I know the person didn’t do it for that reason, even though I know they are certain there is no debt. I feel a debt anyway. It isn’t rational, but it’s the way it is.

    You know, I can’t imagine anyone who knows you would expect otherwise from you.

  3. *hugs* since I have no idea what cause the reaction or annoyance. Just *hugs*

  4. Nobody who knows you would doubt that, I think.
    Or maybe I would think that you sometimes do it to enjoy the joy of others, or maybe because it gives you an opportunity to spent time with them…that much selfishness I could believe.

  5. Anyone who knows you, and isn’t bitterly reacting to assumptions he’s made that have nothing to do with you personally, knows that. *snugglehug*

      …sometimes people say things when they’re upset that they regret.

      I was falling prey to the same dependance on an invalid source of information that I was reacting to somebody else doing. So, egg on my face, and apologies proferred all around.

      Forgive?

        Oh, forgiven. I don’t bear grudges. But the original comment was made behind a friends tag, and I decided this was important enough as a general prinicple to state openly, divorced from any specific context.

        Love,

        Certainly -- I wasn’t the person you hurt, so really any forgiveness from my part is minor, but you have it. I admit, I’m gratified you recognized you were doing the same thing you were scolding someone else for. 🙂

  6. *hugs* And that’s one of the reasons I adore you so.

  7. That’s not much of a surprise to me, at any rate.

    Hrm…

    Can I ask what brought it on?

    *hugs*

  8. I suspect that whatever happened is akin to why I put my principles of intent on my userinfo.

  9. For the record

    Just a hug for you *huuuugs*
