Generous to a fault?

Posted by on April 6, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

worker-30240_1280 Are you a nurturer and a giver?

Many times we exhaust ourselves and our resources by giving too much.

Are you digging yourself a hole?

Taking on responsibilities we don’t need to or are not asked to do is one of the ways we begin to lose our balance and slide down the slippery slope from generosity to martyrdom.

Putting yourself first requires you evaluating the tasks you’ve taken on: Ask yourself why you took on the task in the first place? 

Did someone make a request of you?  Is this something I still need to do?

Did you jump in assuming you were the only person capable? Can someone else do this as well or better?

Did you do it to try to please or impress someone?  Is this working for them and me?

Did you do it because you think you know best? Is this really the best thing to do?

Did I do it because I really wanted to?  Do I still want to?

Did I feel as if I had no choice? Where can I find support?

Put yourself first.  Do what you do from a place of love, not resentment.
