For many, it is natural to give. It depends on the age and position of life, given in different ways. Often we are invited to give ourselves or our time, without starting to choose to do so. It is common to find it difficult to say "no" to another request for help. Whether it is a request to help in school, to train a team, to work late, or to look at a child's friend and say "no" is not just an option for some.
Of those who cannot say "no", generosity, kindness, and compassion contribute to the best society has to offer. Yet, the generosity of the heart can bring private costs. When givers give when they are called and say "Yes" without overseeing their own needs, they are tapping the scales in sympathy with others, but dying sympathy with themselves. Sometimes saying "Yes" and taking action to fulfill the request means that we ignore our needs. In this scenario, we often end up costing much more time, energy, and effort that we must give.
The cost covers meeting frustration. Frustration is a powerful negative emotion that forgets us. We may not realize that we have resentment until we find ourselves intact and insufficiently supportive in other circumstances. This is when we need to turn our sympathy with ourselves.
Often, self-confidence is difficult to call for. Love for others comes much easier. As an exercise to go through frustration, identify areas where you are self-centered. Think about your body, your parents, your working methods. How can you become self-confident and completely conspired with yourself?
Recognizing self-confidence is the first step. Next, tell how these captured bugs had served you in the past. For example, maybe being temporarily late for a meeting, you've been in a traffic accident. Perhaps having an extra pound around mid, provides a perfect snuggling spot for your child. Begin accepting with your own sympathy that you should judge normally.
When you have self-acceptance and self-determination, you are well on your way to spilling to serve others. Volunteering at their best feathers from deliberate choices. Your positive intention supports your ability to be self-reliant and confident. These are qualities that make the volunteer the most valuable gift of society.
