Feelings & Toiletpaper

"Let me tell you something I have learnt in my 34 years on this earth. Feelings, like toiletpaper these days, are wasted. People use them up like toiletpaper, that is what they have become worth to others. Learn from me, feelings get used up. There is no endless source of feelings so be careful what you do with them, and who you give them to. You risk standing there one day, empty, because you gave and you gave without getting in return, and finally there was nothing left to give, and your heart died."

-Spoken by a friend

Your friend is wise and has learnt a lot what she says is true, but on the other hand we humans firstly do not learn from our mistakes, secondly no matter what we are social animals and some of us get satisfaction from giving and giving and giving,wether its our feelings or time or effort, yes sometimes we feel the need for recieving in return and sometimes we think about that but yet we come back to our ways and continue giving.
