Sacrifice Otherwise Know As The Give.

Clay Tile by Jenny Mendes


  • To forfeit (one thing) for another thing considered to be of greater value.
To give something up for something more important or someone more important. To forfeit what you want for something/one else and to do it willingly. Some sacrifices come easily others are more subtle and take more effort to make. We make conscious and unconscious sacrifices for a variety of reasons every day, it is a part of our human experience. Sometimes it comes without effort, you make the sacrifice without even thinking about it. Other times the sacrifice is much harder to make, you may not even want to make it or feel super about it but it's outside yourself and you do it because it's expected of you. Another thing to dance with, how in one moment you can lean into a sacrifice with full acceptance and at other times you resist and fight with the giving up, the giving away, the giving in, the giving out, the give.
