Some people says love means sacrifice, but I do not believe in this phrase. If I sacrifice then what I got ? Although we should not expect but practically if we do not get love in return then why should we love some one? is it worth of sacrifying in love?

It is hard to teach our heart to stop loving a person. But sometimes, giving up on the relationship is the best thing to do. No matter how much we would like to hang on, but if it will pain a lot of people, then sacrificing your love is the only way.

hi! for me, yes. There are times when you need to sacrifice the one you love. Like for instance, you fell in love with someone who is already committed to somebody else, it would be best to love the person without expecting something in return, because you will turn out to be the third party or the relationship wrecker if you will pursue with your love. I'd say its worth it because you will be staying out of scandal. Also, when you love someone who falls out of love for you, then learn to let go even if it hurts so much because you won't be happy if only you is taking care of the relationship. So much sacrifice is needed in love because nobody fall in love and never got hurt. Everyone has been tried and tested when it comes to love. So when entering into a relationship, a person should be ready emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and in all aspects of life.

I don't think love is about sacrifice, but I think that there are times when you have to sacrifice something for another person. I think if we think of love AS sacrifice, lots of drama can occur. I mean, if I fall in love with a guy who is allergic to cats, we both sacrifice: I keep them in the basement in my family room, and he gets allergy shots. Things like that. But I really hate the drama of it all. Keep it simple. find a solution, leave the drama of sacrifice for the soap operas.

In my opinion, love is relation between two persons, if A love B, but B do not love A, I think that is not love. so if there is not love, how comes sacrify. Love contains much feeling such is happy, sad, also contain sacrify. I love my husband, so if necessary I will sacrifice.

Hello, Sonusd. I believe in love and I, for one, is one of those millions pf people who believe that love includes sacrifice. In a good way, though. Love has many faces. It could be a face of a parent, a child, a friend or a spouse or just for the love of God. In all these faces, in order to show love, one, sometimes, has to made sacrifices. Like, when a partner betraying his spouse by having an affair. The wife must sacrifice and keeps on forgiving her husband for as long as she can. Why? Because love means not giving up on someone so easily and that when they hurt us, we must learn to forgive them and give them another chance.Or, if a child is sick and needs her mother beside her to take care of her. The mother , out of love to her daughter, gave up the work she loves so much because her daughter needed her. That's sacrifice. Or, a man, letting go of her girlfriend because the gf is no longer in love wit him and found another man to love. THe boyfriend gave up because he only wanted her girlfriend to be happy and he accepted that he is not the one who can give her the happiness that she deserves. What I'm really trying to say is, love without sacrifice is not really love, in a broader meaning of the word. However, love without sacrifice can still be considered as love, only, it is a selfish kind of love.

I believe that sacrifice is everywhere. It always comes with determination, hardwork, love, ambition, etc.

at some point,yes,i agree love means sacrifice,once you choose your love one,it means you have to give up other man/woman,you cannot accept others court,right? But it's worth to do so. then you have to spare your time from work to your love one,accompany him/her,but you got a lot of happiness.I would ok to sacrify a lot of things if i can have a true love.it's meaningful

I was in the opposite position as your option against sacrifice for love. I did try to love before, and I did sacrifice a lot, but eventually this so called "love" I believe in really betrayed me a whole lot. I was heart broken, and I was disappointed in every aspect of life. Maybe I was stupid, and maybe God wasn't in favor of me to fall in love with someone I love.

A million times yes. To love is to sacrifice! It still feels good to have sacrificed for a person you love even if in the end you felt not loved back. Betrayed perhaps but that should not be your problem anymore. This is called unconditional love.

Yes it is worth sacrificing ! If it doesn't know how to sacrifice then it is not love at all. Love is self giving , it is thinking of him more than thinking of own self. The essence of love is sacrifice !

I don't think it means to sacrifice. Compromise is the better word. There are times that we need to compromise for our loved ones and sometimes they have to do the same for us. When you love someone there are things you just don't do in respect for them. I don't think love means we should sacrifice our own happiness...
