“Is it better to give than receive?”
We have heard this cliché a million times. As a woman, you probably spend most of your day loving and nurturing those around you. Day in and day out you’re probably giving all you have and taking good care of those that rely on you.
The trouble begins when you don’t receive love and nurturing in return from the ones who receive your care. As time passes, it’s only natural for you to feel resentful.
Does this mean you should stop giving because you are not receiving? Of course not! Instead, you need to make it known that you need the same love and compassion that you give to others, everyday.
You too, need to be taken care of. Why? It’s only when you receive this love that all your giving becomes effortless.
