I am a type of person who, if you ask for a gift, I will not give you any even if I was already planning to give you one or even when I was already prepared to give you one. I am not sure if it is because I hate being told what to do or because I hate people who thinks the world owes them something. Probably both.
Here’s what I believe in: a gift is something that is freely given. It is something that came from the heart. When you force someone to give you something, it’s no longer a gift. I’m still not sure if you can consider it extortion or possibly bribery (a gift in exchange of the person’s peace of mind).
Don’t you just hate it when someone tells you, “you should give me a gift.” How about NO? I mean, why should I?
I actualy like giving gifts. I like it when I give something to someone and their face would lit up and you can see that they genuinely appreciate what you gave. I like making people happy even though I don’t like people (in general) that much. I just hate it when someone demands from me something that I don’t have an obligation to give to them.
Patience is a virtue. Things comes.to those who wait. So, wait. Don’t ask me for anything. If I feel that you are special enough, I will give you something. 💢💣💢💣
You don’t want to know what’s on my mind. Trust me. That’s a territory you don’t want to explore.
Have you ever had moments where your brain would start analyzing itself and you suddenly blank out? Like one moment you have all these ideas then you start analyzing them and before you know it you’re picking your brain and then blank. Just a sudden void. It’s like the brain is afraid to probe itself. Or I’m probably just really craaaazzyyy.
These days I’m thinking of Christmas and what it means to me. You know, really means to me not just the christmas parties and exchange gifts part.
I am usually very excited in the months leading up to Christmas. I am one of those annoying people who looks forward to the first of the “BER” months and officially starts the season from there. But the weird thing is, when the actual Christmas day approaches I get melancholic and depressed. It is just really sad to celebrate Christmas when you are far from the people you love.
I believe that you cannot put a price on real gifts. Gifts are priceless things. It comes with it the love, effort, care and thoughts of the person who gave it to you. When someone gives you a gift, it means you are special to them that despite their busy lives, they took the time to give you something. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it only has to be heartfelt. When a gift is given freely, it is given with love. When it is given with coercion, it’s not a gift anymore. It’s extortion… And that is illegal.
If you force someone to give you something expensive against their will, that’s robbery.
If you force someone to give you a gift in exchange for favor, that’s bribery.
If you force someone to give you a gift so you don’t tell the world their secrets, that’s blackmail.
If you force someone to give you a gift by threatening them, that’s extortion.
Last time I checked, these are illegal. 🙂
Point is, wait for people to give you something. Don’t force them. Nobody is obligated to give you a gift.
So, can boyfriends sue their materialistic girlfriends on these grounds?
