"Stories" from the Collective (YOU)

It is more blessed to give...

by Sandy
(California, USA)

Are you a "giver" or a "taker"? This is a question that one should contemplate.

I find it interesting that most people want you to listen and help them with their problems and then when it comes time for you, they run.

So I made a pact to stay away from "takers". These people are like vampires. And once I made up in my mind and saw how I was attracting them...poof! They vanished.

So look around you, your friends and associates and assess if they are mutual givers. Do they give just a little bit and then run? Do you give a lot and then they disappear?

Think on these things. You can tell a lot about a person's character by how they treat others. That is the truth.

Thanks for your 'offering'

Thanks, Sandy, for sharing your thoughts - for what you "give" us to ponder over.

Yes, life is full of givers and takers. I wonder, though, whether people really do recognise their role - whether giver or taker - correctly! :-)

Thanks again,

PS What's with the smog photo, though? :-O
