I ran across this earlier yesteday and I just had to share.
Sounds like a pretty good challenge to me. I know I have often wondered if I am a drain on people. I have a couple friends that when I am around them I can't help but feel lifted by them. Which makes me wonder if they are lifting me am I bringing them down? I have been around those types of people too. The type that no matter how much you give always want more and really drain you mentally and physically.
I think the challenge here comes when you look at the opportunity we have to really be a gift to a friend rather than a drain. Could it be that more often-than-not the way we view ourselves is how we actually act in return becoming that drain that we hope we are not?
Just a thought.
