There is a quote that I’m absolutely loving right now
Givers have to set limits, because Takers rarely do.
I don’t know who originally said it and I’ve changed it around a little so I won’t be sued. Not like they could get much anyway, but you know.
For a long time, I was a Taker. Only in it for myself. Didn’t care what other people wanted or needed. A real bitch … and that’s putting it nicely.
Now I’m more of a giver, proud to say. I know the Taker part was because of the drugs and the horrific things they did to my brain and personality. I’d like to think that the Giver was always there, waiting until the Taker was caught in a bear trap and couldn’t escape.
I was a Giver pre-meds and I’m really a Giver now. It’s fun. It’s calm. It’s less dramatic.
It’s the right way to be.
Are you a Giver? Are you a Taker? How’s that working out for you?
