Accept Gracefully

While the concept of fairness and reciprocity is important to most people (despite the world being an unfair place), we all go through times of need on the universe’s schedule.

When you’re the one that’s struggling, or down, it can be hard to accept help from those that care about you, especially if you feel like you have no way to “pay back” the kindness.

Each other’s backs: covered!

The good thing about friends and family is that with those we’re truly bonded to, there’s no need to worry about paying back a favor “on time.”

When you find yourself on the receiving end of others’ largesse, work on accepting the help gracefully and getting yourself re-settled so that you’re there when others do need help.  Don’t worry about being a burden or a failure — your time to help will come!
