We often hear the praises of generous, charitable humanitarians who are givers, while takers are usually defined as more self-serving than altruistic. BUT, as with any interpretation of life, there is another perspective to contemplate:
Care Givers and Care Takers
“…traditionally, givers and takers, have a polar opposite meaning, yet when connected with the word care, taker and giver, become, synonymous!
So when it comes to caring, giving and taking equals…love.
Whatever you are taking care of, people, animals, land, it is a huge responsibility, and, an honor.”
“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― St. Francis of Assisi
