In most relationships, after the thrill of the romance fades, reality sets in and someone has to make sacrifices. No matter how perfect things look on the outside, someone is sacrificing something. When it's real people and not fictional characters, when is a sacrifice just too much?
My best friend and I were talking about this the other night, sort of wondering where exactly our lives went astray and we could both trace it back to a moment when we were faced with a choice for sacrificing dreams and ideals that we had held for years in exchange for love. The sacrifice didn't happen all at once. It was a slow death of the people that we used to be and at some point along the line it became too much.
Now here we are, supposedly older and wiser, swearing that we will never again sacrifice that much of ourselves. But I have to wonder, for the right guy, how much either one of us would still be willing to give up those little parts of ourselves that don't seem like much at the time until we again give up the very core of ourselves.
So, the question is how much would you be willing to sacrifice for love and when is it too much?
