I was just getting ready to settle down in my room when the doorbell rang.🚪
As far as I knew, none of us were expecting a guest, and so I debated answering it for a few seconds. Just then, my housemate - who had only just gone into the bathroom - suddenly came out & informed me that she'd ordered a pizza online a few minutes ago, and suspected that it might be the pizza delivery guy at the door. Her suspicions were confirmed when I answered the door bell phone; and before she could even ask, I informed him that I'd be right down to get the pizza from him on her behalf.
I still remember how I felt knowing that I was doing her a favour - no matter how small it was. It's the feeling I always get when I can be of help to someone. 🤗What I hadn't realized, however, was how much this feeling changed when the roles were reversed...
