Are you generous with time, money, love, attention, or affection. Do you look upon it as a blessing for you and the reciever when you give away things?

I am a very giving person to a fault (according to a close friend of mine LOL)....I dont turn ppl away, I help out someone in need however and whenever I can etc etc..and I never expect anything in return OTHER THAN respect..dont come to me, accept my help then treat me like crap cause that will be a HUGE mistake on your part....I actually got so bad helping friends in need that it was taking up all my personal time and being the empathetic person I am it was affecting me emotionally and mentally in a very negative way...Its not like that now though, but I'm still very much an "I'm there for you" kind of person...I couldnt see myself being any other way really...I know all too well what its like to deal and live with no help, support system etc etc and its a horrible feeling so I could never in my life turn around and do it to someone else...

I am the same way and I have had friends treat me like crap after asking me for my help. They are still friends of mine but I am more discerning about whom I help out these days because 9 out of 10 times when my friends ask to borrow they never ever pay me back and I am tired of it.

I am extremely generous with it all. Time, money you name it and I will give it to you. The reason why I am that way is because I think you reap what you sow, meaning you are only going to get from people what you give and I give my all.

I am of the same belief but Ihave found that often when you give and you give that when you find yourself in need you will remain in need especially if you count on those you have given t to reciprocate.

I always feel obliged to give - time, money, love, attention, affection, etc. I feel so happy and enlightened when I give even if I'm this poor, a widow, living alone and poor. Giving gives some sort of happiness which could hardly be described. I think I am very generous.

Sometimes I think that I may be a little too giving. To the point that some people take my giving kind nature for a weakness or as something to exploit. But I do notice that the more I give the more blessings seem to come my way.
