In a world where there is an over-emphasis of self, we sometimes find many givers in awkward situations in the society.
Sometimes they end up having to choose between being themselves and continue giving until someone believes in them or join the majority in the quest for self fulfilment.
Personally I would feel it’s equivalent. We need to fulfill ourselves in order to give. Love ourselves in order to give wholly love (not broken love) in which to satisfy an aspect of insecurity.
It’s becoming ever more important to learn to be giving. Give to those who love, give to those who believe, give to those who hunger.
