“You have to let go of your Batman action figure. You can either choose the action figure or you choose your math textbook.”
Sounds like an African mother right?;
Well that was my mother asking to choose between the Dark Knight and my education;
She did know it then but she was teaching me about sacrifice;
You should already guess my choice that day;
I learned a lot about sacrifice that day;
Growing up, I sacrificed things to get other things depending on my priority list;
Till I realized it all boiled down to love;
Priorities I guess takes precedence;
Sacrifice sometimes isn’t all about you;
Sometimes you gotta sacrifice something you love for the greater good;
Might even hurt you but you still gotta do it;
That’s sacrifice. It goes from sacrificing playing FIFA for some serious work to stopping taking alcohol because someone you love doesn’t like it;
In my opinion, sacrifice is messed up, but still one of those necessary evils that reminds us of how human we have to be.
I implore you my dear,
Make that sacrifice.
