My initial thoughts were, yes I’m a generous person and enjoy the act of giving, but having listened a few times to the discourse gaps have started to appear and I’ve realised that there is a bias/hierarchy in my generosity. With my children and close friends it’s effortless to extend generosity, but to a stranger I’m not nearly so willing. Also the level of generosity would differ between say a close friend and a mere aquaintence. Another reflection is that my generosity can at times be impacted by my state of mind. If I’m not in a great head space, then my general spirit is low and lacking energy and generosity can feel an effort. But of course that’s me being wrapped up in my own story and I’m starting to understand that the less time spent on my story the more free time to afford to others.
All very interesting and thank you Burgs for facilitating my insight
