Part of having an AWESOME style is being able to give and receive appreciation. In our culture there is not an AWESOME amount of appreciation. It seems it is easier for most to give appreciation but very difficult to receive appreciation. Yet so much happens when there is an exchange of AWESOME giving and receiving. It is off balance to just give, give and give. The same is true for one that just takes, takes and takes.
Let’s talk a little about receiving. Think about how often we do not receive AWESOME compliments. An example is when someone at work says that you look really pretty or what a AWESOME outfit you have on and we respond negatively. We say something like this old thing or tell them what we paid for. Then there is the inside the head conversation we have. This is my personal favorite! When someone give us a compliment and we wonder what he or she wants from us.
Giving is easier in our world because we are taught, especially as women to give not matter and just let them drain the marrow from your bones, because that is what a good girl would do. Just giving and giving has that draining effect for sure and will leave us with a serious resentment. It is very difficult to give for fun or for free. Also, that type of giving is creepy for others.
A simple way to express giving and receiving is with a word or words.
