Why is it harder to ask than give?

My friend Byron, a co-conspiritor in changing our paradigm of relationship and relating, sent me this article. Spot on, spot on.

“But it is the unpaid obligations that are what creates the rich weave of social life. Sure, we might hate them sometimes, but without obligation, without a debt to pay, without a requirement from our community, we can never have the strength of community bonds that we desire. With meaningful connection comes vulnerability and it is this vulnerability we need to embrace.”
