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
when it comes to what
are dying for and actually need.
Originally posted by Grampy Bobby 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.
