“When I give, it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored; to speak and not be heard; to care for and have nothing returned. When I give it’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart. And I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that. But when things start being taken for granted, when you no longer appreciate my sincerity, I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful. I’ll just get smart, and change your role in my life. Because when I give, I’m all in. But when I’m done, there’s no turning back.”
― Rob Hill
This is something so many of us need to learn:
- When we give to another, give without expectations. Give only to help them.
- But that does not mean you become a doormat. If you are ill-treated, disrespected, do not allow it. You don’t need to get dramatic about it…because anger, unforgiveness,
dramawill only end up hurting you. You can certainly walk away from them, and never allow them to hurt you again.
This is really simple. And life becomes simpler when we understand this. What are your thoughts on this?
