The Giver: Who Is She?

The Giver: Who Is She?

Are you a Giver? Read and find out.


"Who is the Giver?", you may ask.

The Giver is a rare soul; a rare woman with a heart of gold. With the purest of hearts, she is an eternal optimist, even when she shouldn't be. She is logical enough to know when to question things and bring out her inner realist, but at the end of the day she sees the good in the world. She hopes for things like love, change, growth, and peace. The beauty and goodness people possess tends to outweigh the evil through her rose-colored glasses. Regardless of the horrific visions she's seen when the glasses come off and people's true colors are revealed, she still hopes for the best.

The Giver is a soul who naturally gives her love, attention, care, patience, and energy to those in need, but very rarely gets the same in return. Lost, misunderstood, and broken souls typically find her as if a magnetic force were pulling them toward each other. She has a need and a desire to help, to please, and ease others pain, probably because she knows it all too well. She is a walking contradiction. She knows what it feels like to be lost, broken, and misunderstood, yet she's whole all on her own. The giver is a collector of souls, of stories, and of human emotion. She is capable of showing empathy towards all she encounters and seeing light even in the darkest of souls. She is always capable of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how sinister and twisted things may get. However, as a result, she gives her heart, her mind, and her soul to those who are sometimes undeserving out of habit. She can't help herself. Her loving nature is both a strength and a downfall, that sometimes get her burned. Yet, due to her selfless and optimistic nature these burns hold lessons and stories, even if she's the only one who will ever know their hard truth. She heals herself and continues down the road less traveled. She's finds peace in her growth and in her stories.

The Giver, although soft and sentimental at her very core, is also a fierce fighter. However, she did not become this by choice and certainly not overnight. The Giver has been through trials and tribulations. She's seen cruelty, loss, heartbreak, and hardship. She's been loved, but she's also been scorched. She never wants to burden others with her troubles, so she locks them up and buries them deep enough so they're only visible to her. She stays strong for herself and all those around her, even though at times she's breaking on the inside. The Giver's world could be crumbling, but she'd still make sure you're ok before tending to her broken pieces. She has a loyal, servant heart. She wears scars, stories, and battle wounds that she may never speak of and most have not slightest idea of. She hides them beautifully behind a sweet smile. She fights for what she wants, what she deserves, and what she needs in life because no one has ever given her a handout. Nor have many fought for her. She's had to fight her own battles. She fights for those she sees similar qualities or potential in, in a means to help them grow and reach their greatness too. In the midst of it all, she sometimes finds herself lost or forgetting to tend to herself due to her selfless nature. In some cases, she finds herself evaluating the costs and benefits, after it's too late. She's already lost the battle; drained and pillaged of her resources. She must pick herself up from the ashes, with nothing but the power that lies within her bones. She is a warrior, armored and ready to take on each day with the attitude that the day will not defeat her. She will prevail, against all odds; coming out not only standing tall on the other side, but stronger than she was before. She will not let the day conquer her or her spirit, even if she has to go to battle to do so. She will never give up the fight, for she has too much hope and love running through her veins. She believes in too much to surrender.

The Giver is a woman with a wild spirit but a grounded mind. She is wise beyond her years because she's experienced life beyond her years. She's experienced things others have not. She is capable of spectacular, unimaginable things. She is aware of all of this, but is not one to boast about it. She is confident, but humble and ok with who she is. She is far from perfect and the first critic to reminder herself of it. She is constantly trying to find ways to improve, innovate, and flourish, always ensuring there's constant growth in all facets her life. She is brutally honest with herself and those around her. She accepts her flaws, weaknesses, and areas in need of improvement. The Giver loves a good challenge. Yet, this calm, but confident nature scares others. She's also aware of this. The Giver thrives off of human connection, and yet no one is ever fully ready to let her in, so they keep her at a distance. They keep her at arms-length; taking pieces of her at a time, at their leisure, on their terms. Friends, lovers, strangers, family, all have the tendency to possess the same pattern. She has discovered the hard truth; for she's the only one who can unconditionally love her, fully understand her depths, and hear her heart's periodic cry for help.

So, she stays there, in that desolate, lonely place...waiting. She waits in hopes that one day someone is capable, strong, and skilled enough to break down the tall, steel barricades she's carefully spent years building to protect herself. The ugliness of human nature has forced her to do such. Once, maybe just once in her lifetime, she desires for someone to fight for her as fiercely as she fights for everything in her life; to prove all her theories wrong. Make no mistake though, the Giver doesn't need to be saved. She wants an equal to conquer each passing day with. She desires a lifetime of adventure.

The Giver is someone in your life, whether you look beyond your nose to realize it. I can't tell you who, that's for you to discover. When you do, give this person the love, care, appreciation, time, and understanding they not only deserve, but need before it's too late. Do not take their pure heart for granted. Cherish it, before you lose them. These souls don't come around every day. The Giver is indeed a rare gem.

I've always been interested in any product that can get me the Jennifer Lopez-esque natural glow. I'm Indian and have medium-toned skin, so getting darker was never really the goal. Rather, I've always looked for a product that would even out my skin tone and cellulite, basically making my legs look Photoshopped.

Now more than ever we're craving that healthy, tan glow most of us only get after spending a week poolside with margarita in hand. We may not be spending an SPF-soaked summer hitting on our local lifeguards. But when we're going on socially-distanced walks outside, taking viral-worthy selfies, or just want to test out the best self-tanners for when you do finally get to show off all the bikinis you binge-purchased through your quarantine boredom, these are the best to ways to glow up, no matter your shade of skin, whether you have uber-sensitive eczema-ridden skin, or just want J-Lo glow, smooth legs.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.
