I have learned that I can't always guarantee the response I want from any of the people in my life. In fact, I can't guarantee any response at all. But I have to keep on giving, keep on loving, keep on reaching out to people no matter how silent it is on the other end. Otherwise we're both missing out. And I'd rather be an unquenchable, unstoppable giver than be someone who is so easily stopped by reproach or silence.

You have learned this and that's great. But do you still find it difficult sometimes?

Mine too, Bev. And yes, I do find it difficult sometimes. Sometimes the statement "I have to keep giving" comes from a place of peaceful acceptance, and sometimes it comes from a place of hanging on as hard as I can.
