Sometimes we forget that others act according to their own experiences and their own minds. You cannot expect others to react to a situation similar to your own actions. Everyone has expectations.

If you are kind to others you want others to be kind to you. If you give someone a gift you want others to give to you. This does not necessarily apply to all individuals, but the truth of the matter is most people do expect the same treatment in return. Despite your actions, others will act according to their own personalities.

No individual is the same, no individual has the same experiences, and no individual learns the same way. Regardless of your actions do not expect it back, otherwise it will lead to disappointment and anger. If you give someone a gift, do it from your heart and do not want things in return. Of course we treat others as we would want to be treated, but if it doesn't happen do not be angry. Instead move on and understand the situation. Expectations comes from self assumptions. Learn from others and give wholehearted kindness, naturally it will return to you, even if it is not from the person you most expected.
