The moment of regret is before you. And equally, you may not regret it at all. But that’s what you need to figure out before you make a sacrifice. Because by definition, making a sacrifice is one of those moments that there’s no turning back…not even after taking one simple step. So yeah. It’s a big deal. Now is not the time to be hasty.
Something Special and Irrevocable
You have found yourself, for the umpteenth time, willing to make a sacrifice for something. But before you get to it, remember that “to sacrifice” means you are forever abandoning something special to you. Something that really means something to you. And it’s not necessarily something tangible. It could be your principles, etc.
It seems that you’re always willing to work with less because you know how and you know that you can handle it. And somehow you’ve convinced yourself that you’re happy with this approach. And you say things like, “Honestly things aren’t that bad.” and, “Things could be worse.” Plus we’ve been taught that it’s admirable to make sacrifices for that which we love. …I could go on and on.
The (Perceived) Rewards of Sacrifice
Before you decide to make another sacrifice know that there’s something you need to learn about how you experience and embody joy and happiness. Deep down you need to know whether you believe you deserve to wholly experience joy and happiness. Or if you tie them to sacrifice as a reward. “If I do this then I’ll be happy.”
If any of this resonates, wait. Pause. Don’t do anything until you figure out why you think happiness and joy have a cost you must pay. Especially a hidden cost as pricey as regret.
