So, what does sacrifice mean? As defined by Merriam-Webster, sacrifice means “to suffer loss of, give up, renounce, injure, or destroy especially for an ideal, belief, or end.” Put another way, sacrifice is the act of giving up something now for the possibility of gaining something later.
Before being forced inside of the house, I was what most people considered social. I often met up with my friends at the bars to hangout and enjoy good times. My social life was very carefree and thrived in crowded spaces with loud music. Without any of that as a possibility, friends who I often would meet out started to keep in contact less.
Everyday I wake up and thank God that I am alive because only He knows there were times when I didn’t think living was the best option anymore.
