There is a saying, it is better to give than to receive.
I do not think that saying is true. Mostly because receiving in itself is one of the best gifts you can give to someone. Think about it. When you give someone a gift and they do not receive it, does it feel good? If they tell you, “no, no, no, no.” Now think about how it feels like when you give someone a gift and they feel excited. They love the fact that you just gave them that gift.
Doesn’t giving feel better when the person who receives accepts your gift with joy? Then why would it
be a good thing to not receive? Why would you deny someone that amazing feeling?
Receiving with gratitude is just as good as giving with gratitude. In fact, receiving is one of the ultimate gifts that you can give someone.
When I made the decision to become a joyous person, I decided that I would be a person who receives all gifts. With a thank you. And that has allowed me to grow so much. All I do is just say “Thank you,” from the bottom of my heart. It feels so good to give that person that gift of my receiving. Since I have done that I have received much more than gifts.
If you believe in the Law of Attraction then receiving or allowing is one of the most important parts in the Law of Attraction. If you cannot receive with joy the gifts from your friends, how can you receive the gifts from the Universe?
With love and joy in your heart, receive. It is just as good, if not better than giving.
