Giving is very much receiving in many cases. To be clear, it does depend on the certain situation. It also depends on the reasons for why someone has the inclination to give of something. But it seems like in many instances in our society, giving to other people tends to be a gift for the supplier as well. This is because once we provide our services, we have the knowledge that we may have made other people’s lives better. And that can be a true comfort. Admittedly, there are many times in which the act of giving can be a painful experience, but that only tends to be temporary in nature and doesn’t fully affect us in a bad way. In fact, pain can promote the release of splendid endorphins for our wellbeing under the right factors. It can be frightening at first to do something for the benefit of others, such as volunteering in the community, but when we continue to develop our tolerance for such action, it can be an ultimately rewarding experience. Of course, much of this depends on our definitions of “giving” and “receiving”. In most cases, though, these terms can shed new light on varying points of view.
