What does it take to have an extraordinary relationship? Maybe a little more giving and a little less taking.

But in order to give more of ourselves we have to create the environment where giving is a joy and not a chore.

You are not in your relationship to just take and think that is going to be fulfilling. That is one of the surest way to end up being bored and disheartened. One of the keys in having an extraordinary relationship is giving of yourself without expecting anything in return.

Are you to just be a doormat? No. But if you are with someone who knows how to appreciate you, your rewards will come over and over again.

Giving of Yourself – What It Means

Giving of yourself means giving from a genuine place. It means being pure in your intentions, without having a personal agenda beyond having a great relationship. It means creating the space where your gifts can be accepted and appreciated fully.

The Benefits of Giving of Yourself

The benefits that will flow to you and indeed to your relationship when you learn to just give heartily and authentically will be heart-warming. You will experience a joyful spirit but surprisingly, a feeling of abundance. It is when we hold back in our relationship that we experience lack and frustration.

Giving authentically invokes the heart and builds emotional muscle that strengthens the relationship. Always be on the lookout for ways you can be giving in your relationship. It could be a simple favor, or a simple gift of appreciation. It could be a surprise, big or small, it doesn’t matter. Any act of kindness is likely to strengthen the relationship and make it more enjoyable.
