At this festive time of year, most people are wracking their brains trying to figure out what presents to buy for each other. The acts of giving and receiving should be pretty easy for us to handle, though, right? So why does it get so frustrating and complicated? We give too little, too much, with strings attached. Giving should enhance our lives and bring us joy, not create more stress and consternation.
My belief is that giving and receiving joy, whatever form that takes, is one of the main reasons we are on this planet together. However, at times I think we lose sight of our good intentions.
