I learn something valuable today. Not new, but it takes a while to really accept this. That no one gets poor by giving. The logic is, if you give everything you have and left with nothing, doesn't that mean you get poor by giving?
This friend of mine is surrounded by people who keeps asking her for money assistance. She always complains to me that she only has a few red notes and her friends or family are asking for help. She has that extra empathy that makes her the victim of people who take advantage of her kindness. But she ends up giving them whatever she has, thinking that, What if they really have nothing to eat?
But then she shows me how it works. She always gets back even more than what she gives. Then she has more to give to others, and no matter how bad her situation is, she always has ways to survive them, and then she receives even more from her sources of business. She gets new customers, old customers come and make payment, stuff like that. But ocassionally she forgets this too. She will go back to feeling of being taken advantage, and not happy to give. But then she still ends up giving. Whatta giver!
Then she keeps reminding me that Money that comes to our hands, do no belong in our hands. They are meant to go around from one hand to another, pass it to a person in need. That person will pass that money to someone else that helps the person in a way, also by passing it to another hand. In the end, everyone gets what they need from the money being passed around. As long as you are in this passing money circle, the money will always come back to you. Or go ahead and believe this is just God's work. You will never go broke if you serve your purpose of helping another. You don't believe? Try it and believe it :)
