The only plus was that it appreciated in value. The partner is now an ex. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s tough, CP. Did you have to move again or you kept that bigger space? LikeLike Reply Oh I’ve moved several times since then 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Giving up my life as I knew it by joining the Army. Got so much in return though.

I love photography, I love the people it puts in my path, I want people to love themselves, quirks and all and I want my camera to capture their moments for them to look back on with great fondness. I just gotta jump and take the plunge to turn my passion into a career, slowly getting there tho. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes, you need to jump in there!

LikeLike Reply Wonderful. Free. Purposeful. LikeLiked by 1 person Awesome! Congratulations! 😀 LikeLike It’s embarrassing but I cannot really think of any sacrifice I have made. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply That is for the better! 😀 LikeLike Reply If we define the sacrifice as a selfless act, then it would be when I answered a call for help. I had no idea of the risk I was taking, and at that moment I didn’t expect anything in return. Today I wish we’d had the chance to meet before we had to walk away. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What determined you to answer that call for help? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply If I place myself at that moment, I don’t know why I did it. I felt compelled. In hindsight, I perceived the person to be helpless. A head bobbing between swells. LikeLiked by 1 person Giving time because I can never get it back. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply In which circumstances you gave time and now you wish you haven’t? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sure you can – when someone gives you time. In fact, I believe time received is worth more than time given, so it’s a great investment when given properly and with meaning. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I don’t remember. Looks like I didn’t even sacrificed in my life 😂😂😂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s great! Keep it up! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I was going to say being a caregiver for my Mother. And while it was stressful and hard work, I wouldn’t want it to be viewed as a sacrifice. Its just the right thing. But if you have ever been a caregiver for many years, you know the sacrifices many make and have respect for it. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply For how long have you been a caregiver? LikeLike Reply I waited. And waited, and waited, and waited… and I should have not. I sacrificed my time, which is one of the biggest sacrifice one can make, I think… and I am everyday scared of repeating my mistake because you never fully know when it’s worth waiting and when it’s not! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Although I have a hunch about what you waited for, I’m going to ask anyway because it’s better. What did you waited for? LikeLike Reply Well, I am going to reply because it’s better, but also the reply is very obvious 🙂 I waited for the one person I had put my trust into to accomplish his promises. Of course this was never done and, daily, I was given excuses and reasons and delays and blablas… There is when I should have left and, instead, decided to wait. Definitely for too long. Ending up loosing many years (ok, I learnt a lesson, I hope, but still it’s time that won’t come back!). 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person I’ve made quite a number of sacrifices. But, as with a lot of other things about me, I always have trouble picking a ‘best’. So, I’d say each sacrifice is a good one on its own. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply As long as you see those sacrifices as something good, it’s great! 😀 LikeLike Reply Yes. Each is worth it in its own way.
