A Cautionary Tale from Elizabeth Gilbert

Elizabeth Gilbert gave a lot of money to her friends, and it ruined her friendships. “When I lost my friends, it was because I had used the power of giving recklessly on them. I swept into their lives with my big fat cheque book, and I erased years of obstacles overnight — but sometimes, in the process, I also accidentally erased years of dignity.” There’s a lot of of hate-reading and hate-linking to this essay, but I think it’s worth reading and thinking about!!!
