Upon much interalization i've come to the conclusion that i am a giver, complusively so. Unfortunately, the giving has turned ugly into being leeched on. I know I have got to learn how to say no to people and to put myself first; but, the idea seems as foreign as ancient hebrew. so i ask of you... Are you a Giver? Are you a Taker? Do you give to the point that it hurts? Do you take/ask of people knowing that they will give? Do you let people take advantage of you? Or do you take advantage of others? If your giving/taking characteristics were to the extreme how did you 'cure' yourself?
