Taking is pushing.
You are pushing against a force. Figuring out what you can get.
It's swimming upstream.
It's anxiety causing, worry inducing.
It's single serving.
It's relationship breaking, connection cutting.
Giving is pulling.
You are being pulled by a force. Figuring out how you can serve.
It's swimming downstream.
It's happiness creating, for multiple parties.
It's service to others.
It's relationship building, connection fusing.
Pushing is energy-sapping. It's depleting. It's the pit of your stomach aching.
Pulling is energy-inducing. It's invigorating. It's nourishment for the soul of everyone it touches.
Don't push, instead be pulled.
Don't take, don't be the single-serving person. Instead, give. Give of yourself. Give now. See how it lights up the room for everyone.
