Be A Giver Not A Taker In Your Love Relationship
Everyone likes to receive gifts, to be on the receiving side of compliments and feel loved. But it’s not the taking or receiving things that make relationships, it’s the giving. If everyone in a relationship focused more on giving, just imagine how that would make you feel. Are you a giver or a taker?
Just because you’re on the receiving end of things doesn’t mean you’re a taker. Naturally, if everyone was to focus on being a giver, everyone would also be on the receiving end more often, right? That shouldn’t be your motivation for being a giver, however, as you should want to be a giver from love.
Giving is all about sacrifice, loving others unconditionally and thinking about other people besides you. Think about your past relationships and whether or not you were a giver or a taker. What could you improve upon moving forward? Are you currently in a relationship right now?
Giving has to be done with the right motivation and in doing so you will be noticed by your partner. Many people would like to be more of a giver if their partner matched them at the same time. That’s not how it’s done. Someone has to make the first move, and that someone can be you.
Giving isn’t just about presents of course, as it has to do with compliments, compromise and more. What you’re doing is showing love to your partner by giving instead of taking. That word ‘compromise’ is a big one, as it’s something that couples have to do over and over again. Even the most compatible partners consistently have to compromise in order to make things work.
How have you compromised with your partner recently? Maybe you’ve wanted to go do a certain thing, but your partner has wanted to do something else. Perhaps you’ve wanted a certain thing to eat, but your significant other has a different idea in mind. When you compromise, it brings you closer together and you’ll find that your partner will be much more willing to compromise, too.
There is a quote that fits this situation: ‘Be the person you want to meet.’ Do you give enough, or are you more often on the receiving end? Perhaps you don’t give enough, yet your partner doesn’t give enough either. Try being the person that you want to meet!
