The more you give the more you get.....is it true?
"You can always tell a true
friend. When you've made a fool of yourself she doesn't think you've done a
If you were to ask me, what is the one
principle to live by that will make your life fun, easy and abundant? I would
say surround yourself with givers. Having friends who are givers is the cherry
on top of life's meaning.
5 Benefits of having givers as
friends (there are many more of course)
1. There is no such
thing as it's my turn. No need to keep track of who did what because givers love
2. Givers give off positive energy. Their positive energy lifts
you up and makes you feel good about yourself.
3. Givers make you want to
be a better person.
4. Givers are happy people and that happiness can be
5. Someone always has your back. Just knowing that when you
stumble someone will put out a hand is very reasurring. If you are being
criticised in your absence someone will defend you.
6. Having givers as
friends means a life of pleasant surprises. You never know what will be given to
you for no reason other than that you are loved. (OK I know that makes six but
what the hey, I just felt like giving a little more)
these people like you would an unnecessary root canel. The first sign you are
with a taker is that their conversation revolves around me me and me. No matter
where the conversation goes they find a way to make it about themselves. They
will use you and abuse you. They are self centered and immature . They believe
that in order for them to succeed they need to take from others. These people
are toxic to your happiness.
The fools are
takers but don't know it. They may see themselves as givers but they suck the
energy out of you. They may make you a supper but then they dump every morsel of
their problems on your plate. These are people who as I said appear to be givers
but are so negative that they are draining to be around.
The fakers are the ones that calculate
that if they give they will get something back. They only give because they
think it will gain them something now or down the road. They will fool you but
mostly they fool themselves.
What if I haven't been a giver but I
want to change?
