Some people find it more difficult to receive than to give, I think it is something that comes from the way we have been educated at home, for example, I was taught that it was necessary to maintain a balance, that no extreme is good, under any circumstances. So, objectively, if you receive something, you must give something back.

It reminds me of a scene in the series "The Bing Bang Theory", in which for one of the characters it is a great conflict to receive a birthday gift, because that puts him in the obligation of having to give one that equals the one received and it is very difficult for him to find it, since a gift, apart from the price, has an emotional component, which is the most difficult thing to get right. The truth is that he preferred not to receive a gift at all, which his closest friends already knew. Of course, this example is an extreme, but the essence is the same.

Although it sounds bad, one of the reasons why it is usually more difficult to receive than to give, is precisely not wanting unsolicited commitments, particularly if someone volunteers to, for example, give me a manicure every week, as comfortable as it is and as much as I thank her, I would say no, because I consider it an abuse to dispose of someone's time repeatedly, even if she wants; in addition, I would feel indebted and I am very delicate with that subject, I do not like to owe at all, it is something that robs me of peace.



There are spontaneous situations that I can receive, without it bothering me, the detail is in the frequency or in the effort that this gesture takes. I am also not comfortable with excessive praise; however, when it is something punctual, it pleases me. It's not that I can't receive, it's that I feel there is a fine line between impartial and compromising. Regardless of whether the other person expects nothing in return, I have a conscience that I should be rewarded.

On the other hand, I have no problem with giving, I love to make people happy, but precisely because of the way I think, I avoid being invasive or incisive. Subtlety is an art in human relationships, which can help us to handle most things successfully. In theory, according to Christianity, we have come to love and serve, so whatever we do for others should be from the heart; but I think it should also be intended to alleviate a need. In the end, every head is a world, there are also those who are very comfortable just receiving.

We have to do something for someone according to their need.It should be reassuring as well as supportive of their need.
