I have a really hard time letting other people serve me. Holding the door open for me, clearing my dishes in the dining hall, etc. The feminist in me sets too much value on her independence to be served.
At the same time, I often want to give people similar services. Offering to sit on the floor so that they can have a chair, etc. And when other people don't accept my service, I don't always handle it with grace. I usually continue to offer, or just do it anyways (like, I ask someone if i can take their dishes, they say, "no, I've got it" and I take them anyways).
Is service really service if one forces people to take it? Or is it fair to serve others and not let them serve me?
I definitely need an attitude check on the little things.
