How Generous Are You?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic How generous are you? Generosity is that one thing which comes from within and there is just no way in which you could force it. Though if you have it then it is one of the greatest things a human could ever have. The reason being that there are many people who are much more underprivileged than us but the fact that makes it, even more, worse is that society is set up in such a way that the poor has a lot fewer opportunities than a privileged one.

Now it is a fact that we have far more number of opportunities than the one who is underprivileged. If you come from a middle class family then you might know that even for us it is so difficult to become a rich person. There are many things which we should know when it comes to being generous. While being generous is a good thing show off is not. There are many social media posts in which I see that people just donate for showing off how generous they are? It is not right in my opinion as it is not something to get proud of.

Your intentions should be pure and if you show it off then sorry my friend you are not being generous you are just craving for other people’s attention. Attention craving in today’s social media world has skyrocketed and it is affecting many of the young minds. They are being directed in the wrong way and they are having a very toxic life. They are not caring for anybody but numbers. If we go along this path then we might be free from many of the problems of the older civilizations but we might have this new set of problems.

I hope you liked my short article. If you have any insights into the topic then feel free to share it down in the comments section below. Play the quiz as well and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. I hope to see you in my next article.

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything

“It’s important that what thoughts you are feeding into your mind because your thoughts create your belief and experiences. You have positive thoughts and you have negative ones too. Nurture your mind with positive thoughts: kindness, empathy, compassion, peace, love, joy, humility, generosity, etc. The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things into your life.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“True generosity consists precisely in fighting to destroy the causes which nourish false charity. False charity constrains the fearful and subdued, the “rejects of life,” to extend their trembling hands. True generosity lies in striving so that these hands–whether of individuals or entire peoples–need be extended less and less in supplication, so that more and more they become human hands which work and, working, transform the world.”
― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

“Practice giving things away, not just things you don’t care about, but things you do like. Remember, it is not the size of a gift, it is its quality and the amount of mental attachment you overcome that count. So don’t bankrupt yourself on a momentary positive impulse, only to regret it later. Give thought to giving. Give small things, carefully, and observe the mental processes going along with the act of releasing the little thing you liked. (53)
