‘Sacrifice?! Oh god..what negativity this word spreads..!’Isn’t this what people usually think when they hear this word? Because they cannot associate anything but some really critical and bad situations to this collection of letters..
But why we don’t see the other side to it? The side which is not as torturous as this word seems to be?!
You know, I’ve seen people being very arrogant about the sacrifices they did for someone or because of some situations..
But, I don’t think that those deeds remain sacrifices then..because we are just showing ourselves off! We are just trying to convey how great we were..Or how we have done such a huge favor on the other person!
And sacrifice on the other side is such a pure and pious word..that relating such negative expressions to it is in itself equivalent to a crime..!
According to me, sacrifice is not giving up..instead its learning! Learning to live with the thing you gave up..It’s not a favor we do for someone..but a favor we do for ourselves!
For example..there are so many who give up on their dreams because of people who are extremely close to them or because of certain situations..but then..do their lives stop? No! Instead they mark out a new plan to live their life..and treading on this new path maybe they are not happy initially..but eventually they even get to meet some of their new interests…of which they were not aware of earlier.
So..they learn to live a new life..a life they didn’t imagine..a life without those dreams which they lost but a life with new ambitions and a new mindset!
So you need to understand that with every sacrifice you commit..you not only lose something valuable but gain an even more important asset!
And life’s not going to be cake walk..You need to walk down every road that comes in your way to your ultimate closure! So why not lose something better to gain the best?
So..all you need to do is..be accepting to the idea of sacrifice..and not regret it later..or over think about it..because for whatsoever reasons you did it..you learnt something from it..and that knowledge is what helps you in the long run!
So it’s time we stop seeing sacrifice as a storm bursting through our lives to ruin everything but just as a windy rain which will bring out the rainbow of happiness soon!
