Takers Gonna Take
It's really lovely to know that through giving freely, I can inspire someone to be more giving. Sometimes though, I encounter a person who consciously (or unconsciously) feels free to consistently take more than they give. I need to watch my balance with them. For as much as I love to give, and to encourage it, I don't enjoy feeling used. With this kind of person, I need to check in with my giving self, and be honest about who they are and what they want from me.
