#59 question
How do you practice giving against whatever you take in a relationship?

Know! The balance you maintain in giving and taking.

” Excess giving makes you alone in a relationship. And, excess taking makes you a parasite in a relationship.”

-Farheen Dhanjal

How to maintain a balance between giving and taking?

The fact is you can’t have a giver without also needing a receiver. While we like to think that giving is pure altruism, it really isn’t. The giver is hoping to get warm fuzzies from the interaction, but this isn’t possible if the receiver pushes away what is being given. When we can’t receive with grace and gratitude, we cause the person who is giving to feel unappreciated and misunderstood.

Do you think personal or relationship boundaries are harsh? Or, do you feel secure by building boundaries?

When it comes to balancing giving and receiving our mindsets are often unconscious that can get in the way. Before starting with giving and taking you need to know that boundaries play a productive role in giving and taking.

Giving means offering your time, energy, and resources. It is a decision about how you want to spend your time. And, when you do so you are setting parameters about investing yourself into someone else.

Setting boundaries while being a giver is to make a wise decision about not investing yourself in something which is not in alignment with where you want to reach in life.

Whether you are receiving you need to clear a misconception that
– You are not entitled, and
– People who love you are not to be at your service.
– if you want to be a receiver be a giver at times.

You can control giving by building boundaries. And, you can even control receiving by not allowing yourself to always be in search of someone to serve you.


Each question would consist of 3 parts:
Part 1: QUESTION – It would determine the path of knowing you as an individual.

Part 2: KNOW – It would let you know what you learned about yourself.

Part 3: QUOTE – It would depict the righteous approach to the concept being asked in the question.


You just have to reply to Part 1, and just read, learn and reflect on Part 2 and 3.

Grab a pen & paper and start writing your reply. Remember! Nothing is tough when it comes to doing it for yourself. And, you just need to be truthful to yourself.

Feel free to share.

Happy “soul-searching”
