Just because I invited you to my birthday party doesn’t mean I have to go to yours…

Guilt

Guilt

Pressure

Anxiety

Obligation

Have you felt any of these before ?

Sometimes we give to others freely. Other times we may not feel inclined to give to others because we feel resistance towards giving to them.

Just because someone does something for you doesn’t mean you have to do something for them back.

It is essential that we give out of love, goodness, and respect versus anxiety, pressure, guilt, and obligation.

If you feel resistant towards giving to someone (other than the possible reason of our own selfish nature), then don’t.

Make it a point to give in a healthy manner that is congruent with your own feelings and boundaries.
