I left an apartment I loved so that my partner and I could live in a bigger space. The only plus was that it appreciated in value. The partner is now an ex.
That’s tough, CP. Did you have to move again or you kept that bigger space?
Oh I’ve moved several times since then 😊
Giving up my life as I knew it by joining the Army. Got so much in return though.
What do you regret the most about the life you knew?
That I wasted it; however, I learned a lot along the way.
Leaving my home and living im hostel without my family ….😌😌
How come you did that?
My career. Autism made me a carer and it’s only now 15 years later after training and support can I attempt to build a new career and gain something for me.
How would you like this new career to be?
Successful, flexible to suit for my family needs and fun. 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.
Yes, you need to jump in there! I’m sure things will be awesome for you! 😀
Thank you, I hope so!
My life to serve Christ.
How does your life look like now?
Wonderful. Free. Purposeful.
Awesome! Congratulations! 😀
It’s embarrassing but I cannot really think of any sacrifice I have made.
That is for the better! 😀
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.
What determined you to answer that call for help?
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.
Giving time because I can never get it back.
In which circumstances you gave time and now you wish you haven’t?
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.
I don’t remember. Looks like I didn’t even sacrificed in my life 😂😂😂
That’s great! Keep it up! 😀
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.
For how long have you been a caregiver?
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!
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?
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!). 🙂
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.
As long as you see those sacrifices as something good, it’s great! 😀
Yes. Each is worth it in its own way.
