We antiheroes often give to get. Our generosity comes with an insidious ROI expectation. But when we learn to just give without any hopes of short-term personal gain or a patient long-term exit strategy, we leave room for others to do same for us. I don't believe in karma, but I do believe in the Golden Rule.
By doing to others what we'd expect to receive, we actually begin to change the selfish part of our antiheroic characters. It happened to me. Today. In reality, it happens to us more often than we think. We're more aware of such generosity and lose our sense of entitlement when we freely give our time, expertise, energy or resources to others.
