Giving: The Way Of Receiving

January 06, 2011

“Giving always opens the way for receiving.”

If you want to show your true heart to a loved one, the nicest thing you can do is give without expectations. You know what I mean: share with someone without expecting anything in return. All of us need to receive love, attention, support, understanding, and then some.

While its important to communicate your needs or desires, its also possible to display what you want by giving it first.

Tell someone you love them if you want to be loved back. Tell someone your always there for them if you want to receive support.

We can’t always expect to receive what we have given, but we have opened ourselves up to greater possibilities (the possibility of our actions being reciprocated) when we’re willing to show what it means to be giving.
