Like everyone, I want friends to love me and accept my love but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I found the best solution to keep the right people close.
I built a habit to GIVE TO OTHERS: presents, time, help, advice, love, etc.
Being selfish is a natural survival skill, but just as you are happy receiving, others are happy when you give things to them. And happy people are more willing to reciprocate (especially the right people).
It actually took me years to make giving my default reaction but this habit has brought me so much happiness I can’t stop spreading the idea!
Giving and helping each other is the central message of the animated short film: Return the Favor.
And that is because returning a favor is one of the most basic and easiest ways to start giving and becoming used to it.
Why am I doing this?
Stories change people and it burns me inside when I see other people's stories encouraging all kinds of harmful ideas. There is so much good that can be done by telling the right story to someone in need.
I love creating visual storytelling so I use my comic and animation to teach the good things I learned from personal experience.
If you want to try how it works by yourself, why not use this video as practice for your giving action?
Spread the word to someone who would like/benefit from this animation!
