a gift is not a gift when it has strings attached.
from Google: gift <ɡift/> noun
a thing given willingly to someone without payment; a present.
when we give with the expectation of a return, then we have attached strings to that which we have given and it is therefore not a gift at all!
a present with instructions on how the givers expects the givee to use it; could be considered a form of abuse, manipulation, passive-aggression.
so this day and every day, let’s look at how we give, is it truly a gift or an ultimatum?
