Shift your giving power
We teach people how to treat us. By not speaking up or being a good example, we allow their current entitlement attitude to really take hold. In the long run, this isn’t good for anyone.
Be bold, be daring, be true to yourself! If you are giving to others and there is only entitlement and expectation with no fair exchange of energy in return, then do something different. Stop expecting people who feel entitled and self-absorbed to actually be different. Instead, it’s you who must change. Take your love, money, and time and shower it on those who are truly in need. Give the money, time, and effort to a charity, soup kitchen, animal shelter, or to any other type of deserving souls who truly could use a hand of love and help.
Dare to stop traditions of giving spoiled, lazy people more material stuff in an attempt to win their affection and love. Dare to make a real difference in someone else’s life – someone who will truly benefit from your contribution. Let go of the belief that you must give gifts to people who never acknowledge your efforts, and just give to those who are truly in need.
My best Christmas of all time was when I went to some local churches and found 6 families who had fallen on hard times and didn’t have money for gifts for their children. It was right around the time where people were getting laid off by the masses, and there were several breadwinners who lost their jobs right before the holidays. I played Santa’s wife and got all the sizes of the children and got them shoes, coats, toys, and electric blankets for everyone, including the parents for all 6 families. The look on their faces when I delivered these gifts on Christmas Eve was something I will never forget. I never even told them my name but the Minsters of the churches all thanked me profusely for helping these families have a better holiday.
So I challenge you to stop feeling hurt, upset, and frustrated. Give yourself a break. Have a bit of love for yourself and stop giving to people who are too lazy or entitled, or who think that thanking someone is not necessary. Save your money, time, and efforts and refocus your energy to give to those in real need. We can only shift the world through conscious behavior.
I am pretty active on Facebook posting my thoughts: I am known for not being politically correct, but for speaking the truth. Frankly, I find that most people are afraid of actually saying what they really believe in fear of rocking the boat.
