When I think of my closest people, one of the qualities that is consistent amongst most of us, is the difficulty we express or experience in receiving.
By receiving, I mean asking for help, and then receiving gifts, support, favours, compliments, appreciation, you name it, we struggle. Interestingly, another trait we all possess is that we would give everything and anything to others.
For various reasons, this is where our differences lie, we struggle to receive what we willingly give.
It’s interesting. Something I’ve noticed recently. I wonder if that’s why they are my people; if this value/quality is what connects people who are exceptionally different on the surface.
