The Generosity Series: 4
Let’s stop believing that generosity is always about you giving away stuff. Money, food, clothes, yada yada… And while we’re at it, stop thinking only “good” people can be generous. The darkest people can secretly be generous as well. Maybe not even secretly. Like @…FinnyWinny… said in a post about their future dream career in criminal justice, “The bad guys are not always bad.” So, who can be generous? Someone with no money, luck, fate, or family? Absolutely - as long as you have a little love deep down, you can do amazing things even if you have nothing. No matter how messed up you view yourself, generosity is a virtue everyone may imitate.
What I mean by redefining generosity is I want people to realize that generosity isn’t something that only certain people have to do. “Only the rich have to be generous” or “Only good people are generous.” Chuck that idea out the window because that’s just an excuse so you don’t have to do anything for anyone else. Generosity doesn’t have to be the one thing you set out to do in life to be something in your life.
