WOW! When I typed “receiving” into Google to get a definition, the third result for Merriam-Webster.com said, “The word you’ve entered isn’t in the dictionary.”
Receiving isn’t really done here, is it? People cannot receive a gift or a compliment or dinner. There always seems to be this underlying fear of obligation or reciprocity.
If I accept this gift, then I have to buy them a gift.
If they compliment me, I have to compliment them.
If they buy my dinner, they must want something from me later.
Yea….that feels heavy like a ton of bricks!
I am so grateful you stopped by!
One Conscious Chick!
How does it get even better than this?!??!
