It is said that on one occasion when a wise man was teaching a group of people, he found himself on the receiving end of a fierce outburst of abuse from a bystander, who was for some reason very angry.
The wise man listened patiently while the stranger vented his rage, and then he said to the group and to the stranger, “If someone gives a gift to another person, who then chooses to decline it, tell me, who would then own the gift? The giver or the person who refuses to accept the gift?”
“The giver,” said the group after a little thought.
“Any fool can see that,” added the angry stranger.
“Then it follows, does it not,” said the wise man, “whenever a person tries to abuse us, or to unload their anger on us, we can each choose to decline or to accept the abuse; whether to make it ours or not.
‘By our personal response to the abuse from another, we can choose who owns and keeps the bad feelings.”
“You free to choose, but the choices you make today will determine what you have, be, and do in the tomorrow of your life.”

In life, we decide whether we want to receive and keep “gifts” or reject and let go of them when we acquire them from others. Gifts can be either momentary or lasting are genuinely given to us to make us feel happy, appreciated and loved besides developing our self-esteem and confidence.
However, there are gifts positioned to us that create feelings of anger, sadness, guilt, regret inside of us which will affect us to be more unenthusiastic in our behaviour and have pessimistic mentality.
Do you find that perhaps you have been receiving all ‘gifts’ without thinking or considering of the consequences it will have on you and that you have to receive them no matter what?
Do you project negativity as a result of accumulating it over the years, and if so, isn’t it the time to let it go? After all, without letting go these harmful negativities, how can we be open to receive positivity?
Would you like to be able to let go of these ‘bad gifts’and get to hand-picked your own gifts and take back control of your life and designed it the way you want?
