Sharing always happens every day in our daily lives, and we have shared with others since an early age. It is one of the primary ways we learn to communicate. As kids, we are taught to share by our parents and are resistant to this act as we are instinctively territorial. However, we learn to share when we notice the kind of joy that it brings to the person we choose to share ourselves and our belongings with. We tend to consider it a given that sharing is a good thing.
Sharing can be as fundamental as exchanging compliments or pleasantries. Simple acts like these can also brighten up a person’s day and make them feel more positive. Moreover, the act of giving and receiving both invokes gratitude in the participants of the exchange. The idea of sharing could be done in various ways such as sharing the things that people in need, knowledge or experience to make a positive change in the lives of the people. The receiver is thankful for the good deeds and the giver feels gratitude for being able to have that exchange and impact.
The more we share, the happier we make ourselves. Sharing need not be practiced in terms of material. Sharing can be equally immaterial. You can share embraces, smiles, pleasant words, experiences, stories and so much more. You can even share tasks and responsibilities. No matter in which capacity you choose to share, sharing inspires positive feelings in our mind. It builds trust in others and helps us build better relationships, which in turn sustain us socially for the rest of our lives.
