    It's Not About Me

    Take a step back. What do you have in life? Do you have a lot more than you need? Do you have to get more and more, and then don't know what to do with it? I did. I didn't like that lifestyle, so I flipped it. There are so many people out there with nothing. I was humbled...

    Give and Give and Give...

    I am a giver.  So much, in fact, that I often consider the wants and needs of my friends and family over my own.  Most wouldn't see this as an issue per se, but being this way has often made me feel like I'm neglecting my own needs and also makes me resent those, at...

    I Love To Give!!

    there is just something good about being able to give rather than to recieve!! from a very young age, i quickly learned just how good it feels to give!! there is always someone worse off than yourself, so if you can afford to give a little then why not!!

    I Keep Saying I Will Stop............ But I Never Do

    I just wondered if anyone else has found themselves in this situation before. I'm a very giving person and I enjoy making people happy. When we have events, plays, dinners, etc. at my church or at work I always go the extra mile but always seem to be the only one. I am always...

    Unicef And More

    Giving of yourself and what you have is a wise choice to make in all walks of life. We all have surpluses even the poor and hungry do. There are people who just are givers in everything. A child born in Africa has a greater chance of not reaching ten years of age than any other...

    Someone Steals Her Stuff

    All my life I've loved everything about being a girl. Crossdressing is my happy time and I have wardrobe that would make any women envious. I do my own own make-up and have been asked by, not a few, women to help them them with theirs. But, in my quest to achieve the truest...

    And It's Not A Bad Thing

    To Fill Empty Hearts

    I feel that there are very few more important things in this life as a human being than giving love to others. Maybe I am just projecting, but I feel like most of us aren't loved the way we are meant to be loved, with full acceptance of flaws and forgiveness of past and future...

    I Value Generosity

    I always try to give more than I receive. I think generosity is an important virtue, and it truly makes me happy to give to others who need something more than I do.

    Giving Love...

    I give. It's always been that way for me. I just can't grasp how to be selfish. I don’t understand how to focus first on the things weighing heavy on my shoulders before helping my loved ones get rid of the stuff weighing them down. I am not good at walking away from people...
