The inherent need to share
Every day on my path toward this new life I witness incredible acts of sharing. I have never met a community more open and willing to share their knowledge and support with each other.
It’s as if whenever we learn any new remarkable thing we’re bursting to share it with those around us. We can’t wait to get it down in writing so it’s there for anyone who might benefit from it.
Sharing is human nature. It comes from a deep place of abundance. Our lives, our knowledge and our happiness are never decreased by being shared. Rather, it brings immense delight to us to know we’re providing something significant to those around us.
We share our stories, our experiences and our knowledge. The generosity flows freely. It brings us so much pleasure to share and to know someone finds value in what we have to offer.
We have an inherent need to be a part of something and to belong to a community. One way of seeking those relationships is by sharing. The very act of sharing grows and nurtures our relationships.
Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
– Norman MacEwan
Our knowledge is too important to keep to ourselves. We’re like information-packed books that beg to be read. If we just sit on the shelves, that valuable knowledge is unexplored.
Sharing information allows us to process it more fully. We’re able to understand it differently by getting responses to it from the people around us.
Our need to share gives us the incredible opportunity of influencing and challenging the thinking of others. It brings us joy to enrich the lives of those around us.
It also lets others know what’s important to us and what our values are. It shows what we care about and how we think. It defines who we are to others.
We make the world a better place by sharing.
So to everyone who so generously shares their knowledge, experiences and insight, from deep in my heart I thank you!
