Givers and Takers

The problem with "givers" is they tend to surround themselves with "takers".
These people are happy to take everything that's offered to them. They tend to be assertive and confident, sometimes a bit entitled. But they rarely GIVE in return.

The giver continues to give and give to everyone around them until they're drained. Nothing left to give. And then? There's no one to fill them up. ..... Mother Teresa even faced this. There's nothing inherently right or wrong about either of these personality types; they both have to be kept in check. ..... Givers must learn their boundaries and give only as much as they can handle. They should give only from a place of love. If they're giving out of obligation, manipulation, or expectation then it's not out of love. They feel resentful that they've given too much and breeched their own boundaries.

(Let ALL that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14 💕)

Givers, find people or ways to get filled back up. Takers, learn to give more than you think you should.
