Don't Mistake My Kindness For A Weakness
A very wise old friend use to say that and it's sooo true. I am a very strong women and I would rather give than receive. But don't appreciate being taken advantage of or for granted.
I truly get personal satisfaction from giving and or helping any of my fellow human beings. I feel weird when someone does something nice for me or gives me a gift. I really don't know how to explain it...I mean, I am touched and appreciate it but don't know "how" to accept it. I'm not use to it. It doesn't happen very often.
I have been know to give away my most precious things as a gesture of love and appreciation for whomever is receiving the gift. It means more to me to give unselfishly and without reward. I never want to change this gift, this quality that I have because it is "who" I am.
