Let us be clear on what a sacrifice is: when you make a sacrifice, you choose unselfishly to give up something for yourself for the benefit of others. You choose this although you know what you have to lose, and you know you will never get it back in any way or shape or form. When you bring up a sacrifice – no matter how big or small – in the context of discussing who does what for whom, favors, decency, expectations, etc, you are in a single stroke turning a noble deed into an underhanded manipulation. If you want to sacrifice something for me, I can’t stop you, but do so knowing I may never know about or understand your sacrifice. Don’t make sacrifices you can’t carry, they tend to last longer than your initial decision to make them. I know I’m not perfect in this regard either, but I’m trying. Really, I am.
