    Me, You, Them

    I asked you to watch this Latin film which I watched so long ago as it moved me so deeply. I don't know if you will, or if you will understand what I wanted you to a take from it. I relate to the old rich man in the film. Not that I am rich or even old in my mind. But because...

    How Can I Refuse

    We come across people from all walks of life on our daily journey. The journey may be by foot, by train, by bus or motoring. Or the journey may be a just a phrase. The joy you see in the faces of the poor and needy when you offer to help in various ways brings us more pleasure...

    Submissive?

    I do feel best when giving.It makes me happy to make others happy... gives me pleasure to provide pleasure for others. I believe that's a big reason why I am submissive. I have a natural tendency to nurture and serve others.

    Giving

    There's something about giving, that I'm addicted to. I usually don't feel free to take unless I give and I more readily give up on receiving than on giving. For example, if I know someone I care about will not send a holiday card or gift, it makes me sad; but not giving somethng...
