YOUR PERSONAL POWER MESSAGE:
24. I am open to receive
Many of us want to be tough and be warriors. But we can’t do it all. There comes a time when we must be willing to ask for help when we need it. We must also be willing to receive help or gifts if they’re offered to us.
If you’re not used to receiving or find yourself always being a giver, ask yourself if you’ve been blocking gifts from others. Are you truly open to receiving? Do you ever reject love from others because you feel unworthy of it or because you don’t trust that someone can love and accept you fully?
I personally had a lot of guilt attached to receiving gifts and compliments from others. I felt like I was taking advantage of them in some way. I didn’t realize by refusing to accept those gifts, I was making them feel rejected. Once I realized this, I learned to receive gifts from others with gratitude and appreciation.
Allow yourself to receive, say yes and maybe one day you’ll return the favor-obligation and guilt free.

-Have you ever felt guilty or unworthy about receiving things from others? How or why?
