Giving & Receiving


Are we only giving to receive something in return? Or are we giving freely of ourselves because we genuinely want to? “Giving to Get” is a sign that you believe something is lacking. Ultimately this frame of mind will cause resentment and an imbalance in our lives.

In today’s episode of The Karen Kenney Show, we talk about taking a real honest look at our relationships in order to get clear on how we might be showing up “transactionally”. While also exploring what we can do to get our lives and choices back into balanced & loving alignment.
