When giving is giving

In a home, in a relationship, in any situation where people work together, each side has to give.

What you give is not so important. How you give is.

You have to want to give.

~ R. Tzvi Freeman
There is giving that is real giving, and there is giving that is really taking. This depends on whether the receiver appreciates the gift.

There is also taking that is really giving. This depends on whether the receiver gives pleasure to the giver by accepting the gift.

There can be physical giving, and there can be spiritual, or emotional giving. They can be independent, or together.

Physical giving lends the gift dimension in the physical world, but the spiritual element is primary.
