I Tend to Give More Then I Receive

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 789 People

    I am a caregiver and nurturer by nature.

    I enjoy helping people. I give of myself through my time, prayers, finances, and most any way that's needed. I do not do these things for accolades or recognition. I do them because that's how I show love and respect for my fellow person. Selfishly, I sometimes wish my...

    I do give more than what I receive,

    but do I regret doing that? No. I love helping people. Helping others makes me happy so I am not only doing it for others, but I am doing it for myself. I don't need those that I help to give back to me. I am doing it because I want to. I am doing it because it is helping others...

    It's True

    I enjoy giving rather than recieving, thats all there is to it. I feel guilty when I recieve something and cannot give in return. I also prefer to help others and to give to others than to get anything at all in return. One of my reasons is karma. I feel that if you give now...

    I spent a good 20 years helping my sister

    as she continued to make bad choices. She kept having children without anyone but me and my mother to help her take care of them. With 4 boys and no income they ended up living with me at different times over the years. I always supported them, I couldn't always live with them...

    I tend to give more than I receive.

    But I don't care because it feels great to make people happy. It's the best feeling ever to feel appreciated and wanted.

    They Take Till There's None Left.

    I honestly don't mind when people take my belongings, I usually even give people whatever is mine that they really like. But the thing that really breaks me is when they step all over me and take what you can't physically see with your eyes. They take my dignity, self respect...

    I'm not talking about Christmas presents here.

    Because I'm old enough to actually think it's more fun to actually give Christmas presents, then to receive them. No I'm talking everyday life here. I feel I'm constantly positive, giving, caring, full of empathy and trying my best to be there for my friends (the few still...

    And I don't usually mind.

    It's just when it starts going unnoticed and it makes me feel unappreciated. Back to the old me, when I was angry for being left out of everything. I changed that part of myself but everyone wants to be appreciated. If I'm doing something, it's because I care.

    The other night I came home to find my

    housemate had self harmed. I think she had done more than intended with four long deep slashes to her mid thigh. Without question I calmed her down, put her in the bath, changed her bedsheets, gave her clean pyjamas and stayed with her until she went to bed. The next day I took...

    I Am What I Am, Nothing More, Nothing Less...

    I have always been this way.  It's just my nature.  I am an oldest child.  I also am the oldest child to two alcoholic parents.  So not only did I raise my sister, but my parents as well.  Now that we are all adults, I'm resented by both of them.  I...

    I do feel that giving is important,

    I'm not upset that I give more than I receive, however I do feel that more people should do so as well. Giving grants one with a feeling of satisfaction and gratitude, it allows you to be blessed by your actions. Giving more than you receive grants me a calm pleasant feeling!

    I can't decide weather it's you

    or me. I can't put my finger on the reason why we are drifting apart. And that is ok. Although I've seen this coming I can't help but to cry. You were my best friend. We talked day and night. Shared everything. But now my love, I think it's time I said goodbye. No matter how...

    I give way more and I don't know how to stop.

    . How can I stop being such a caring and giving person? How can I start telling people no and just not caring what happens.. Yeah I always believed it was better to give but at what point does it stop? Does it stop?

    Yes And It Is Draining Me....

    Sometimes I feel I have to be everything to everyone. Not only in my job as a daycare worker but I also feel that I am the first one to offer support and kindness to others. I care and love deeply and am very loyal. However, I have met a lot of people who have taken advantage of...
