Unfair distribution of labor? Love has a solution.

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

“See the need. Do the deed” is one of my boss’s favorite sayings. Unfortunately, some people either don’t see the need or if they do, they ignore it. It often leaves the same people doing a big portion of the work. And this is a breeding ground for resentment.

I’ve experienced this first hand. My roommates and I had an unusually large amount of trash and recycling to get to the curb after Christmas. We got it out there before the trash truck came. But at the end of the day, I passed by the house while I was on my way to do some errands. I noticed that the trash cans were tipped over, empty—lying in the street. I knew that one of my roommates was home, but she hadn’t brought in the trash cans.

We'd love to hear from you!
