“It is better to give than to receive.”
There is so much talk about why giving is good but very little about receiving.
Have you ever wondered, “How does one receive love?”
If no one received no one could give. There is no giving without receiving. They are two sides of the same coin and both equally important.
Are you truly open to receiving love?
If not, why not?
Sometimes it can be safer to be the one that gives all the time.
To receive love requires that you allow yourself to be vulnerable. You cannot receive love by closing your heart. This is why it can be so difficult, because it requires that you open your heart to let love in and allow yourself to be touched by another human being.
To receive love requires that you acknowledge that whilst you are whole and complete, as a human being it’s natural to need love and connection.
Part of the vulnerability of receiving love is that you might risk getting hurt. The other person might withdraw their love, die, betray you, change their mind, and more. And this could hurt you deeply.
Sometimes it can seem safer and easier to NOT let love in and try to keep your heart safe. But in doing so, you end up missing out on so much love and connection.
From very early on as children we are taught that if you:
Are a good girl/boy.
Eat all the food on your plate.
Get all A’s at school.
The list goes on….
Then you will be worthy to receive love. We learn often unconsciously that in order to receive love we must do certain things, be a certain way, attain specific goals and once we do, THEN we will be worthy of love.
This is a lie.
What have you told yourself that you need to do or achieve before you are worthy to receive love?
You are worthy not because of anything that you did or accomplished but simply because YOU ARE!
You are worthy to receive love just because.
So allow yourself to be open to receiving love.
Chances are there are many more people in your life willing and waiting to give to you than you might be allowing or open to. Look around, let yourself receive their love and support.
One of the keys is to make a decision to allow yourself to receive love and be more open.
Decide now. It’s one of the most powerful decisions of your life.
When you allow yourself to receive, you also give a gift to the person that is giving to you. You give them the gift of being able to give to you. When they give to you they access more love in their own heart.
The nature of energy is that it must circulate and flow. Giving and receiving allows the natural flow of energy.
When you allow yourself to receive love, you bring yourself into the flow.
Receiving love is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and another.
