When two people enter into any relationship, each one will look for attention and/or affection from the other especially if they sense they are offering more than they are receiving. Animals inspire us to drop this mindset and to give without expectation of receiving.
This really is love at the highest level, and can open roads to more peace in our life. Isn’t it the expectation that gives us stress? And isn’t it true that in most cases giving without the expectation provides more in return?
The first place we must start is with ourselves. We must give ourselves love and self-care without counting a cost or expectations beyond realistic.
When I look at my Shelby, I see someone who leads the way in this important spiritual quality.
She will always give without expectations and she also takes care of herself. Just check out the time she allows herself on her lounge chair.
