I tend to be a giver. I give credit where credit is due. I give advice. I give leeway in order for someone to have a second chance. I give space in relationships. I give time for the other person to state their opinion in a conversation. I generally give the benefit of the doubt. And I give respect.
I’m certainly not perfect, and I have my shortcomings, but I do my best to not take take take.
No one wants to be around people who take all the time. Take over the entire conversation in order for their opinion to be heard. Take advantage of situations in order to not contribute. Taking someone else’s time for granted. Taking advantage of another’s generosity.
Let’s not forget: What comes around goes around. Besides, there’s more than enough to go around for all of us.
