🤷‍♀️ Are You a Selfless Giver, Or an Otherless Giver?

When you think of a selfless giver, you may conjure up an image of a virtuous, benevolent character; however, being selfless is not all that it is cracked up to be!

Selfless givers give to others regardless of the purpose and whether or not the giving is in line with their values and beliefs.

Selfless givers struggle to say no to others and as a result can be taken advantage of, which often leads to feelings of resentment.

Selfless givers do not always practise self-kindness and are susceptible to chronic stress and ‘burn out’ because their giving is unsustainable.

Being selfless is not all that it is cracked up to be...

Otherless givers, on the other hand, have a clear sense of purpose and ensure that when they ‘give’ it is in line with their values.

Otherless givers understand that boundaries come from a place of self-worth; therefore, they know how to say ‘no’.

Otherless givers know when it is time to rest and replenish themselves, and as such, they ensure that their giving is sustainable.

What type of giver do you want to be?

Always ensure that when you ‘give’ it is in line with your purpose and it is sustainable, as you can not pour from an empty cup!
