I Sacrifice My Needs For Others

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 126 People

    Dear God... Why Me?

    I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home. Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get...

    An Answer To A Simple Question

    I just thought I would share how an answer to a simple question that I asked inspired me. A young lady who I don't know answered my question regarding willingness to sacrifice by saying she would sacrifice all just to make someone smile. My cynical mind doubted the validity of...

    It Has Always Been a Part of Me
