I was fortunate enough growing up have a great example of humility, empathy, and selflessness. Proof that you can help others everyday, put your ego aside and not boast or expect praise or anything in return.
You see more and more of, 'oh, look what I DID for this person. They were so grateful for me.'
Maybe there's nothing wrong with it. Maybe it's just a difference in perspective based on how I was raised. Because if you're helping someone and expecting something in return, you're doing business, not kindness.

'Remember you're loved and you always will be.'
When I was younger, I thought I was in love and loved. I was so wrong, but too late to stop the damage that came.
The scars are faint, but I saw them everyday. A reminder of everything said and done that was meant to isolate and break me. Of dark, dark years. I've wanted to cover them for years, I've been waiting for the right thing.
These words are from a song, that I will listen to on repeat on the bad days. To think about my family and my friends that brought me back from the brink of self destruction. I appreciate them more than I could ever say.
