"Close proximity between giver and receiver created a sense of investment on the part of the giver and a feeling of obligation in the receiver."
John Ratzenberger stated this in his book, specifically speaking about the relationship between factory owners and factory employees, and the community they built together (while building a product).
It's been on my mind this week. I've been placing this in several different context, considering how it applies. Context like:
- My relationship with God
- My spiritual community
- My job
- My parents
- My past relationships
- My future roommates.
I curious if anyone has any thoughts on the quote and how it might apply to one of your relationships.
