I think you are totally onto something, and I see it with volunteering all the time. You volunteer for something, and the demands just keep getting greater – it becomes not what you volunteered for. It is a sense of giving and demanding. You give which then causes someone/something to start demanding, which in turn can cause resentment and volunteer burnout…
In the digital world of sharing what is interesting is that it is that it doesn’t need to be proportional, but something helps. Like, I blog a lot (or I used to, but I need to get back into it). However, I don’t expect a comment on every post. But if I never got a comment on any post, I might be inclined to stop blogging. I stop giving because I don’t feel like the giving is making a difference. If I feel like it makes a difference, then I keep doing it.
Interesting reflection and my turn to lose my train of thought … LOL …
