Giving not Taking

Is giving advice giving?
Or is it a one-upmanship?

Is giving a beggar giving?
Or is it enabling?

Is giving a kiss giving?
Or is it a betrayal?

These are questions I’m asking myself. What is my intent when I give of myself? Is it helpful, needed, wanted? Or does it just make me feel good about myself?

Today’s random thoughts given and asked randomly. Please feel free to comment!

  1. These are really good questions! Am I giving a dollar to the man begging with the cardboard sign to make his life better? Or to make me feel better about my own life? Very tough questions indeed!
