Giving and Receiving

Some people just cannot give.

Who knows why? Perhaps they thought they were poor when they grew up and now they have something. Or maybe some other deep need.

But they want to keep what they have.

Some people receive from others with the attitude of entitlement.

Who knows why? Perhaps they were given so much as a child that they just expect it. Or perhaps they grew up envious of what other people had and now think that they are owed.

It doesn’t matter. It’s all about attitude. And attitudes can be changed with a discipline of mindfulness mediation.

Blessed are those who can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.
