“A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you’re willing to lose. Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right, and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you’ve spent a lifetime building. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don’t see coming, when we don’t have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that’s when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear.” – Grey’s Anatomy S2 E23
Someone once told me the right decisions are always the hardest ones. Like taking the blade to your vein so the poison will not kill you, like taking the step back in order to move forward. Sacrifices. We sacrifice because we believe in the greater good, the betterment, for love. We give the world, but more often than not, the world is not wanted. A sacrifice with no receiver makes it nought.
