At the End of the Day There is No One Left But You
It is a horrible feeling to realize that even after you did everything for everyone, when it comes time to switch roles there is no one there to repay the favor. This tends to happens because givers usually link themselves up with takers. So when a giver wants to become a taker, there is nothing left to take. Takers can sometimes be incapable of coming out of their selfishness long enough to help the same person that helped them. You never want to question if helping someone was the right decision because everyone needs help. But in the same token if the same people who you took care of can’t take care of you then it is very reflective of the past, present and future state of the relationship.
