    so much of what it's all about...

    so much of what it's all about
    is in having a little understanding of what people want
    and, then, not giving it to them
    some of the time
    (like our parents were with us when we were young and now we are with them)
    and being sensitive, resourceful
    and reliable
    when it comes to what
    people
    are dying for and actually need.

    Give whenever you want but withhold whenever you should.

    the fact that a generous giver
    should also learn to become a gracious receiver
    isn't all that well understood;
    false modesty is the norm
    in the ghetto of low self esteem.

    We're taught, hopefully well, but when it's all said and done the choices we make are ours and ours alone.

    human beings want to be warm,
    listened to and liked
    and need only one thing more than any other:
    to be loved
