Karma - To give and receive

Karma in relationships is often misunderstood. Some people love to give. It's a great feeling, and they do so with no expectation. But then, they wonder why they have so little. If you look at their reactions when someone did try to give to them, it becomes clear. If they said, "You shouldn't have," "It's too much," "I'm fine," or nothing at all, then this is what they have put out into the world. Then, no matter how much love, time, or help they give, they've clearly stated they want nothing in return. Giving is virtuous, but so is accepting gifts gratefully. Otherwise, the refusal denies another person of the chance to give. ~Doe Zantamata
