Is it truly better to give than to receive?

The act of giving has come from a need to be liked.......


During my formative years it was ingrained to always give back, in the form of a gift, or act of service, but I always struggled with the 'why' behind my personal actions as I grew older, the need to be liked, validated, the fear that how I felt about myself was how others saw me and in-turn created my reality.


Only until later on in life I understood why I was so easily conformed, my love language is 'acts of service'


Is it truly better to give than to receive?


Next time you give ask yourself, "Why am I giving? Is it a pattern? and does this serve me?"


The more we come from a place of awareness, the more we live our authentic selves Research shows that giving benefits us under two conditions. First, we have to give willingly. And second, we have to believe our act of altruism will have a positive impact. When these two conditions are meant, we truly are happier and healthier when we give than when we receive


The act of giving gifts activates the brain's reward center, triggering the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and happiness. This experience of positive emotions contributes to increased overall well-being and a sense of fulfillment.


Is giving serving you?
