So about gifts... a particularly over-analytical friend of mine was trying to tell me that the reason that I feel I need to give people stuff is because secretly I feel inadequate and I feel somehow that if I give people stuff they'll love me.

I think that's bullshit. When I give someone something its a way of saying "You weren't here with me, but I was thinking of you"... or if we're at some place together and I want to buy something for someone its a way of saying "take this and remember this moment, cuz its a cool thing to remember!"... or if I just want to do something and I don't feel like doing it alone, then I will buy a friend a ticket too... or if I know someone would like to do something too, and they're someone I like to spend time with, I'll buy them a ticket so we can go together. Okay? That's what its about for me. Plain and simple. I like to give people stuff cuz it makes them smile, or sometimes because it makes me smile. That's it.
