Balancing Giving and Receiving
June 1st, 2023
Balanced giving is a joy;
Imbalanced giving breeds resentment.
Balanced receiving increases connection;
Imbalanced receiving breeds entitlement.
Stop giving from a place of sacrifice.
Stop giving to compensate for lack of worthiness.
Stop giving from a need to be useful.
Stop giving while ignoring and dismissing your own needs.
Give to yourself, then share that boundless love with others.
Give others the opportunity to love and support you;
To see you, to hear you.
To really know you.
To know the real you.
So, be soft now, and open your heart
Fill your cup and allow yourself to blossom.
Embrace this journey of your unfolding,
Into your delicate power, your fierce gentleness.
Open yourself like a rose to the sun,
And hold yourself sacredly.
