What are the proportions of giving and taking in your life?
Take some time to reflect upon each and one of your relationships, do some notes if necessary, and think about the results. What do you see?
Are you predominantly a giver? Or a taker?
Don´t worry if you are out of balance in giving and taking – there are ways of correcting the situation. Focus on what is purposeful, listen to your intuition, and first then decide, whether continuing the giving is the right thing to do (this means, if you are in a situation where you are constantly giving without getting anything in return).
Just as in Chinese philosophy, giving and taking need to be in balance in order to create harmony.

– There is no light without darkness
– There is no high without any low
