Nollywood actress, Tonto Dike has a word for people who have the habit of giving to other people even when they are struggling themselves.
Tonto Dike, who says she has been broke as a result of giving to people, advised that anyone willing to give to the people must first try to build themselves up before trying to build others.
She stated that being a giver would be so draining for a person if they are not doing it upon the directions of God.
Tonto Dike further stated that she has now understood the principles of a giver as giving has left her broke which has, in turn, put many of the people she has been giving to in hope of receiving something from her that isn’t forthcoming because she no longer has the wherewithal to give to them.
On the back of this, she advised that people try to build themselves before trying to bring others who need their help up.
“Being a giver can be draining if you are not doing it in Gods Order…
I have been broke helping others and in that state left people hopeful, and more broken..
This went on until I understood the principle of a Giver..
You must build your own to be able to build others..
I would literally give and out myself in debt and in Zeroness…
In all, I felt fulfilled but I knew someone was not right…
DEAR GIVERS, THERE IS SOMETHING INDEED CALLED GIVING RIGHT, May God help us all to get to the point where we give anything and we don’t feel it,” she wrote.
