Have you ever compromised your own happiness to make someone else happy?
Have you ever, or were you ever willing to compromise or give up certain aspects of your own happiness if when providing that portion of your own to another person, you made their life somehow better for giving it?
My mother used to tell me “It is better for you to have someone love you more, than for you to love them more.”
I think that happens sometimes naturally in some relationships where there is a sacrifice aspect to a certain extent.
Have you ever loved someone because you knew that you could help them, or better their life and in doing so, that made you happy as well?
Sometimes, we are supposed to love this way…Not everything is always about us, our needs, and our wants, and sometimes, it should be a source of joy, to know that you loved someone else to better their life.
What is your take on this belief? I know there are contrasting opinions to a severe extreme. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said. “Sure I love you, but it’s you or me, and I pick me.”
