Personally, I think it is a wonderful thing to help people, however, there can be times when people will take advantage of your kindness as weakness. More often than not, I’ve met people that will demand for free service, reason given is I am the expert and it is easy. If I were to ask them to help me, they will always have an excuse, such as – busy.
I really hate it when people ‘demand’ me to design something for free for them because they say it is easy, cost nothing to Photoshop ( I subscribed to Adobe Cloud CC for a monthly flat fee ) and it is a simple task. I have this friend that always ask me to do this and that, sure, no problem I said, but when I asked him for a simple advice on stock market, he quickly changed the subject to something like – How’s your cat? I am not asking you to hide a dead body, just some advice which will cost you nothing, unless my Photoshop subscription fee. From that day on-wards, I only reply him 1 or 2 words, selfish.
