Giving and Receiving are the Same Action

By Marion Nixon

Mar 12, 2022


I heard the Good Things Guy being interviewed the other day. He spoke of how the proverbial act of random kindness changed his life – and he was the giver, not the receiver. Then yesterday I read that before there’s a giver, there has to be a receiver…

At one time I was hyper-independent and found it very difficult to receive. Then one day, thinking about the saying that it’s better to give than receive, I realised that without a receiver, nobody can experience the blessing of giving, and by receiving I was giving someone the blessing of giving. That brought to mind a play I’d seen in my late teens which ended with the powerful symbol of open hands giving and receiving, and the insight that the two acts are one and the same. How often is your act of receiving also the gift of the blessing of giving? If this feels awkward for you, book a free call with me  to talk it through.

With life having more downs than ups over the last 2 years, I’ve learnt another level of receiving with grace. When you experience heart-felt receiving, you will discover that the world is full of the most warm, generous people. I had to let go of my independent ego to receive with grace, to stop listening to my inner critic trying to shame me, and to instead, through heart-felt gratitude, enrich the lives of the givers. Successful people often say they could not have achieved their success on their own.  I’m discovering the truth in that.

 If your Inner Critic is keeping you from receiving and giving with grace and heart-felt gratitude, you need to teach it to encourage you to be kinder to yourself as that will make it easier to be more open-hearted to others. My ebook will help you do just that! Download it here.
