Giving is better than getting

Giving is better than getting. Why you may ask? Because giving makes you feel good, you actually get happiness, when you give. When you get, it feels good, but that feeling is temporary. After you get, you feel, like you owe a debt, at least a debt of gratitude. It's like an itch that needs to be scratched always there reminding you. Problem is you need two to tango. The giver needs a getter, after giving he feels better, but the getter feels like a debtor... see the problem? Anyway Jesus says it best "there is more happiness in giving than receiving". Enjoy giving all year long! John Derek Hamilton November 29,2015
