There is this one time I asked my mum why the number of separation of couples has increased... Her answer was quite direct. "People no longer know the difference between compromise and sacrifice."
For the longest time, I saw sacrifice as an act of sympathy and compromising. I felt like many people sacrifice their careers, dreams or even lifestyle in order to make relationships work.
We try so much to make people stay or to maintain people and end up feeling hurt and broken when they do not meet up to our expectation.
