anxiety of receiving gifts

Are You Joyfully Receiving Gifts? Are You Really?


December is a month of giving and receiving and, whilst most people are stressed about giving, few pause to understand how strong the anxiety of receiving gifts is. Might sound funny and strange, but you’d be surprised by how much stress receiving actually puts on us.

Whether is about what we receive, whom from, how should we react, has he/she remembered what I want, is it nicer than what we’re gifting... And the list can go on and on and on. However, those are just triggers.


The real anxiety comes from much deeper roots . . .
