The act of giving is a selfless gesture that is enjoyed by many, and surprisingly these same people may not be very comfortable with the act of receiving. If you think that you do not deserve to take then here is a guide for you that will tell you how to accept while giving at the same time.
Those who do not like to accept love are emotionally unstable most times, as they feel that they do not deserve such love. They are mentally resentful and spiritually they feel depleted. Everything and everyone seem to move away from such a person because he wouldn’t like to receive love from anyone; instead he is better off giving when the need arises. Relationships bloom when there is mutual give and take; by only giving you can segregate your emotional and mental being from others. It is like, everyone is in a room with you but you aren’t there in your entirety. The fact is that when you receive from the world and people around you, you tend to feel better and you see brighter things in life and it stimulates your imagination and gives you new hope and positive energy.
By being spiritually naked you are revealing yourself and this means that you let out all your strengths and weaknesses when around people. It is not just the good and healthy parts that should shimmer but also the vulnerable you should be out in the open. You include your entire self when you are presenting yourself to people around you and this way you will be able to let your naked spirit be seen. The truth is that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses but how you come to terms with them is what counts the most, you are authentic so be it. The more you hide your inner self the worse off you will be.
Acceptance is very important and you have to realise that you are fortunate to have people around you who would say and do you nice things. Celebrate life and be excited by all means. By accepting a simple compliment you are letting people know that you are ready to receive. By pushing people away from you, you are sending a message that you do not want anyone or anything. You can show that you are ready to receive by being open to what people have to offer to you which include compliments, assistance and gifts. Accept all such forms of love with gratitude.
When you are being grateful you become receptive to people’s generosity and also to the abundance that life has to offer. You will find that everywhere life takes you there is a pleasant surprise hidden there, people aren’t so bad and you are very deserving. Accept their love, friendship and kindness and experience the power in your life. Try and count on all the things that you have been gifted with and learn to accept them and thank people, just be genuinely appreciative towards life in general. This way you can create a positive mindset which will finally lead you to accept more love and kindness from people around you. Think of it, isn’t nature being generous to you by adding so much to your life? Can you stand back and say, no I do not deserve this?
When you are being loved, you should accept that love and reciprocate the feelings. Life is very simple, do not complicate it by becoming a cocoon, be open and let the right ones come in.
