We all do a lot of things everyday. And most of it, we do them not just for our self. Mostly for people important to us. We sweat out the difficult stuffs for their welfare. Sacrifice. That’s the exact word.
Sacrifice is noble. It is a very good deed. Just like the heroes and the saints who sacrificed their lives for the benefit of many. The OFWs who work far away from their families and sometimes in a hostile place just to provide the needs of their families. Soldiers who put their lives in danger to protect the country’s sovereignty. Athletes who train hard to achieve honors for their country. And normal people like us who do our day to day job to earn for what our loved ones need.
Each of us is a hero to someone. And these actions are unselfish until we start talking about it. Though the value of sacrifice decreases when we whine or brag. And even at times when we try to sound downplaying what we do but which a disguise to attract more attention to our act.
People do not need to know how hard it is, what was given in exchange of it or how many people benefit from what we are doing. In contrary, humility and silence highlight sacrifice more than anything.
