“Maybe this is your way of teaching me how to receive graciously. How to accept the fact that most of the time, we could use some help…”
I know I am not good at receiving. I am not comfortable with it, actually. That is something I realized after being acquainted with generous and giving people. Yes, I am surrounded by people who give abundantly, who share whatever they have without asking for anything in return. And most of the time, I had no choice but to accept.
Maybe this is your way of teaching me how to receive graciously. How to accept the fact that most of the time, we could use some help. And I still have so much to learn in this department. Like receiving without any feeling of guilt. Receiving without silently thinking and calculating how to return the favor. Receiving without being embarrassed, humiliated even. I need to learn how to receive and just be grateful. I need to learn how to receive wholeheartedly. To just breathe deeply and feel gratitude. To embrace what was given and cherish it. I need to learn how to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart and simply mean it.
