ARE YOU A GIVER OR A TAKER??

I FIND JOY IN GIVING TO OTHERS (EVEN STRANGERS), I FEEL I GET THE BETTER PART OF THE DEAL. THIS MORNING I RAN ACROSS A 75 YEAR OLD MAN WHO WAS LOOKING FOR A RIDE TO A LOCAL CLINIC, MOST PEOPLE WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE HIM THE TIME OF DAY. I DROVE HIM TO THE CLINIC, AND HE MADE MY DAY. KNOWING I HELPED SOMEONE IN NEED MADE ME FEEL AWESOME!!

I REALIZE IN THIS WORLD WE LIVE IN WE HAVE TO BE WARY OF STRANGERS, BUT MY INTUITION HAS NEVER LEAD ME WRONG, SO MY QUESTION IS, ARE YOU A GIVER OR A TAKER???

  • I'm a giver. But wouldn't give a stranger a ride anywhere! You never know what could happen.

    The other day at our local ice cream shop, i saw a young girl i knew, she was with her little friend and they didn't have enough money to buy an ice cream to share, so i gave her $2 to buy herself an ice cream cone. I felt good about doing that!

  • I'm a taker. I feel like a drain on my friends and family. I'm a single mom who recieves no child support. I am really struggling right now and need all the help I can get. I feel guilty for it, but at this point in my life, I'm a taker.

  • I am a 100% giver but I have to admit people have taken advantage of my generosity and have hurt me tremendously. So now I look carefully in who I really help out.
