I agreed to your choice of the color of our living room last year, now you have to go with my choice of the color of our new car. You owe me that.
I made a lot of sacrifies by not attending a number of parties, now you owe me good marks in English and Mathematics.
I took you to one of the famous restaurants when I invited you; you better take me to a similar one.
I like and comment in all the pictures you post in Facebook, but you don't frequently like the ones I post.
Keeping score is the enemy of a happy marriage, a true parenthood and a good friendship. Many of us, consciously or unconsciously, maintain balance sheets for every relationships we have, every role we play in our lives.
But it doesn't work that way. We tend to forget that our relationships are not business contracts. It doesn't matter how intelligent, efficient and hard working we are.
The only thing that matters is how much we care.
