real "sacrifice"

TO many people , "sacrifice" is a demoralizing word that connotes deprivation.

Is that how you feel?

Do you make sacrifices because you are forced to, or maybe because your generosity prompts you to incur a loss in order to further a good cause?

Originally, "sacrifice" had a different meaning : to give up something valuable in order that something even more valuable might be obtained.

Carry out an action that embodies this definition.For instance, sacrifice a mediocre pleasure so as to free yourself to pursue a more exalted pleasure.
