    Always Giving But Never Receiving...

    The thing is I try not to paint everybody with the same brush. I'll always put myself out to help if someone needs help. The fact that other people are selfish should not cause me to stop being kind or courteous to a stranger. I dont know, maybe this is a naieve way of thinking...

    How To Find A Job When There Are None

    This might help! Many people rely on "Help Wanted" advertisements to find employment. Don't! Look beyond that. There's an enormous iceberg of jobs under the surface in the U.S. economy. You can't see them because they go unfilled and other employees take up the slack...

    But Need To Be More Selective....

    As to who I am so kind and giving to. I have always been the giver and am tired of it to be honest. I have found that most people abuse my kind nature and have no respect for me. It's difficult to stay the same when you have been trodden on one too many times. Sometimes I feel...

    I Was Born To Give

    (Almost) Everything in this life is worth it. I don’t expect all the people I like or admire, like me or feel the same, nor they miss me like I miss them. The important thing for me is that I know at some point, we got connected and that moment will be unforgettable.  They...

    Giving

    I've always been a giver and I don't believe I will change.  My parents always told us to help another.  Give when we have, not being stingy which we need sharing.  I don't believe the giving part will ever be taken away but now I have my limits.  Don't get me wrong, I...

    The best kind of giving is being anonymous.

    Then they can't try to pay you back and you can just sit back and watch in complete and utter bliss. <3

    .. So when you feel those niggling negative thoughts creeping on you... block them out of your mind. Don't let them affect you anymore. You are in charge of your happiness so don't let the silly negative thoughts hurt you. Stop over thinking. And start smiling Because "good...

    Everyone in their own way is a giving person.

    I believe it's not what you give that matters, but how you give it. If you give only to receive regonition, you not a giving person, if you give expecting something in return that doesn't make you a giving person. Gving with your heart, with no expectances or not wanting...

    Sometimes To A Fault

    I have actually given away so many things and so much of myself over the years that I just don't know any other way. The real feelings I get from living my life this way are more rewarding than all the trinkets I have ever carried!
