Generosity of Spirit, Generosity of Heart
Generosity can also be defined as being a giving person to ourselves; being gentle to oneself, being able to acknowledge what you need, to ask for it, and to receive from others gracefully and thankfully (a.k.a. healthy assertiveness). Paradoxically, this can be both very difficult and quite joyful to engage in.
Generosity as a heart & soul spiritual practice often generates and walks hand-in-hand with charity and forgiveness, allowing these two other virtues to expand in a natural and balanced way.
