The Giver, The Receiver, and The Taker

You're probably wondering what the heck I'm talking about. 

Allow me to explain. 

I have discovered in my 40 years on this earth that people are either the giver, the receiver, or the taker. 

The Giver

You give and give give and give. And it makes you feel complete. And happy. And fulfilled. Whether it's the shirt off your back, the feelings in your heart, the prayers in your soul, or the time you can spare. You give. You're the giver. 

The Receiver 

You love receiving. Receiving gifts, compliments, time with your friends, hugs, encouragement, you're the receiver. And you are ever-so-thankful and grateful for those who gift to you. 

The Taker

You take. You don't receive. You don't give. You suck from others what you want without the slightest concern or second guess of how or why it is happening. You just do it. 

I have all of the three types. I have friends who are givers. They just love to give. Would literally give the shirt off of their back if needed. I have the receivers. They just love to receive something. My time, my effort, my energy, my heartfelt gift-giving. They just love and are grateful as a receiver. Then there are the takers. Those who suck and bleed me dry of my energy, my time, and my patience. 

So tell me, which are you? And who do you allow into your friend circle?
