What is something you sacrifice for the greater good?

Asked by erichw1504 (26336 points ) March 29th, 2011

What do you sacrifice in your life to help yourself, other people, or the world?

It could be a habit you have stopped, a food you no longer eat, something you don’t buy or participate in, etc…

So, state what you sacrifice, what or who it benefits, and why you do it.

I ‘sacrificed’ a career to raise my daughter and be home with her til she was 11 when I went back to work part time.
No regrets, although I am challenged in my mid-life now after divorcing her dad, to keep earning a living.

I was a latch key kid and wanted to be there for my daughter in ways my mother was not there for me.

I am very impressed with how mature and secure my daughter is and I take some credit for that. She is waaay more secure and together at 23 than I was. lol

I am proud of that and it goes to show how having a healthy, consistent parent makes a big difference in a person.

I stopped buying anchovies for my pizzas years ago. They ruin the taste of a pizza and so I am donating my share of anchovies to the people who love these salty little fish. Yuk !!

Income? We all sacrifice a proportion of our income, via the taxes we pay, for the better good that can be done with it by Government, ie: healthcare, welfare, etc.

My free time, I’m working seven days a week… Mostly twelve hour shifts to support the company I work for, as are many others & we’re still falling short… :-/
But it’s ok, the managers say they’re right behind us, 100%…. If we need them on the weekends.. The number for the golf course is up on the wall in the works canteen :-/

I quit smoking, I compost, I reuse, repair, recycle. I buy my clothes at a value village, I cook from scratch mostly. And I support grape growers around the world!

Bring out your dead sociopaths. lol
