Sacrifices


I want to know what kind of sacrifices people here have made in the name of love. There are people blogging on this site that have, what I consider, made some of the most extreme sacrifices that I could ever imagine. I’m quite impressed. When I was with my ex, I made a career sacrifice. The military wanted to send me to a 4 month training in Biloxi, but they were not willing to send my ex with me and put us up in off-base housing. I told them I didn’t want to do it, as I already held a degree in the particular subject matter. They gave me an ultimatum of going or getting out. It really was the hardest decision that I’ve ever had to make. I loved the military and wanted to finish out my career. I served 8 years and only had 12 more to go. However, I didn’t want to leave my ex behind. We thought of her traveling out to see me and all the possibilities, but nothing was worth it. So, I got out of the military. I don’t really regret having made that decision, b/c I had everything I wanted at the time. Were your sacrifices worth it? Do you regret it now?

Sacrifices can never be regrets, because it was a conscious decision that you made at the time believing that it was the right thing to do at the moment.

I've made some choices, but wouldn't call them sacrifices. My ex and I were apart for 8 months when we first were engaged and that was a very difficult period. It seems like yesterday now, yet in fact it's in actuality been ages ago.

We all have to make decisions about how we are going to live our lives whether the choices we make end up being a mistake or not... they are choices that we have made in the name of love. I totally believe in fate, I think everything happens for a reason, people are put in our lives for a reason- we just need to open our eyes and see that. As an example, I had a patient who had just lost his legs bilateral amputations over a 5 year period. He was in my facility and during his stay became good friends with a gentleman who had diabetic neuropathy with poor blood flow to his legs and feet. The two gentlemen became good friends, the gentleman with the bilateral amputations discharged home, the other stayed and 6 months later had to have both of his legs amputated because of the poor circulation and developing sores on his feet. It was only with friendship and support that the gentleman was able to go through losing both of his legs and come out of it a better man.

So, open your eyes, appreciate what is in front of you at any given moment and understand that things can change in a heartbeat.

I wish you the best Aascrompn
