It has been my own experience and observation that giving the gifts of self is, more often than not, the easier, more common end of the equation. What too many nice, good people have difficulty with is the acceptance of gifts of self and learning to go with the flow of that love. In order to truly receive the gifts of other, one must needs learn to let go–a very large obstacle for many people far more used to the giving and expressing mode. And, yes, it is good to receive as much as to give. It gives more purpose, meaning, depth, richness, and reciprocity to any and all gifts of self, including love.
