Some of us love to give. Those of us who are aware are careful to look at our motives to see whether our giving has any strings attached. Giving just for the joy of it is a wonderful experience… but how are you at receiving? Sometimes this is where we are blocked. Do we really feel deserving to receive or are we more comfortable being the giver? Receiving requires some vulnerability and we aren’t always comfortable with that. It means letting go of control and sometimes that’s a real challenge for strong and successful women. But in order to have a healthy relationship there must be give and take, or it becomes one-sided and resentment can build.
What are your challenges in receiving? Can you see how receiving is actually a gift to the other person? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
