Are You Giving Too Much?
Updated: Oct 18
Do you feel like you're constantly giving and never receiving? Your time, your effort, and your energy are precious, and when you're pouring into a seemingly bottomless cup, it gets noticeable. If this is happening, there's a near certainty that the relationship causing these feelings is not meant for you. At least not in the same capacity.
Our most powerful and potent relationships should feel reciprocal. That doesn't necessarily mean that everything you do is tit-for-tat. Depending on your Blueprint, that can feel too "transactional" and not be right for you. But you shouldn't feel like you're doing all the lifting in your relationship.
The crazy thing is, the other person in this relationship probably feels similarly! Whiel you think you're giving your everything to them, it's entirely possible that they have these same feelings. And this is a sign that you're not each other's ideal people. Because no matter how much you feel like you're giving, the other person is not interpreting that intention.
Rather than butting heads or expecting them to change, it's important to make room in your life for relationships that DO feel reciprocal. Where your effort in feels balanced with the other person's effort.
