That's a good question. I naturally give to others like breathing it comes natural. One of my very best friends has told me for years I don't know how to let others do for me. I always blew off her claims as being kind remarks as to my good deeds.
As of the past year I came to learn that she was in fact right. She and I set out to solve this by pulling back doing a little less for others and in turn allowing others to help me out by accepting their offers.
This proved to be a very big change and learning experience for me.
As my friend pointed out it letting others help you is often the greatest gift you can give to another. Oh thank goodness for honest and determined friends.
Thanks for the question, Katie
