Sometimes I feel like I give too much of myself away too easily. It’s like I constantly hand out love without expecting any love in return. It’s been quite an issue of mine over the past few years. Lately it feels like people are constantly taking and taking and taking from me. Not that I mind giving anything away if I have it but it’s causing me to feel drained. As if the life is being sucked away from me and I have little to nothing left.
Even then somehow I still manage to muster up a corner of what’s left of me to give to the next person.
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28 NLT
Sometimes that’s all I want in return.
