Appreciating the actions of other people
Asking for, receiving or giving help is a natural part of life, still, it can seem overwhelming, uncomfortable or be something we do not even consider. STUDIO REBECCA NORBERG offers different kinds of help but we also ask for help when needed and we love to see what comes out of a situation when the action of helping becomes a naturally part of a process or relationship. Let us help you and let us know if there is anything you can or would like to do for us, we cannot promise you anything but we will see what we can do.
Doing favors for each other is what makes modern society social, efficient and functioning. Transactions of giving or receiving help happen all the time without us maybe even thinking about it. Fx. someone makes you a cup of coffee at a café so that you do not have to make it yourself, you pay them so that the business can keep making coffees and the person who served you gets payed so that they in turn can pay their rent and have a roof over their head. If we strip away the profit or money, the ecosystem of services basically comes down to a you, an employee and an employer helping each other (and a landowner).
Although money is a very convenient way of "giving back" when someone does you a favor, it is important that we see beyond the transaction so that we do not forget that there is a person on the other end of the deal. For STUDIO REBECCA NORBERG, money serves as fuel for the business so that it is able to keep operating but it should never overshadow the people putting in the work, offering the service. If we could take money out of the equation we would because it would probably make the exchanges more transparent and human. This is not the case so we do what we can with what we have. However, we do not believe that money is the only value to be exchanged or way to give back so we operate with different transactions for different situations.
When we are able offer help and build a relationship we do this but it comes with a belief that the act of service will be repaid, in some form or another. It is important for us to trust others to treat us like we strive to treat them without ending up squeezed out and drained. We navigate the help we can offer and what we receive in return and we try to not question, feel guilty or ashamed about it because we know that help flows best when you let it come and go with ease.
