Gratitude

Gratitude

You hear the word "giri" a lot in samurai related films or anime as it means duty, honor, an obligation, debt of gratitude, sense of decency and social obligation. This word has been floating around in my mind a lot lately. My father once told me to always be cautious about what you receive from others as it will always entail something in return.

Plus, you can always judge the character of a person by how he repays you back for your kindness. Because there are those types floating around that will milk you for all you've got till you can't give anymore then turn their back on you. Blood suckers really.
