sacrifice isn’t bad , it’s not good either.but there’s always a particular moment when it builds a threshold between light and dark.
“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.
But sometimes it doesn’t.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.
That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”
? Veronica Roth, Allegiant
A few days ago one of my old friend told me that if you have ever felt the pain but never showed it to anyone ,especially your closest ones so that they won’t feel the same way as you do,then congratulations mate ! You have started experiencing the life..you are learning to sacrifice!
You should become more welcoming ..every day , every hour is bringing up new thoughts , new feelings ,new emotions and yeah it is there for a reason even if it is sadness , anger ,happiness , emptiness ,love or jealousy..oops! not jealousy. these emotions show how much you lack someone in your life . someone whom can be taken care of and someone who can take care of you.River of time never stops , You share moments together and then a point come when your ‘someone’ has to depart on its own ways. Maybe you could have spent some more time together ,Maybe you could have chosen the same rue but you were different and your roads were different too.
You know what makes ‘sacrifice’ a beauuutttiiiffull word????
Its simplicity ,innocence , beauty of selflessness , and the most importantly you don’t need anyone else in this process .
if you truly love what you are giving up ,it’s clearly not sacrificing ,it is rejuvenating your positive energy with your maturity. but giving up on something easily without having it is definitely not sacrifice. some people say “you don’t have to sacrifice everything..neither you should be so kind that people start taking you for granted.” And for those i would like to tell you that somethings are not in your hands and it’d be better to let them go.
it’s your decision which makes you wiser than ever.It may take a valuable thing of yours but it leaves its scars ..scars which are not less than gold medals. it labels your bravery , tolerance and gives you a worthy and a meaningful life.
everyone’s life is full of freewill and choices . some people believe that destiny and luck plays a major role in one’s life and it may or may not be true but the point is that it is all about taking risks. you cannot always blame your luck for your misfortune
maybe it seems all lost, may be you feel broken ..but at the end what is the point of having it when you know it yourself that you won’t be fully content to have it. you need to let it go for your own sake.However, it enlightens the other true values of life. The only thing it requires is more patience , more strength and most importantly , love
