Love, Sacrifice and Self-Destruction

Love and happiness are the basis of life. Love is a celebration of one's own values embodied in another person. Romantic love is being able to see oneself reflected in the response of another. When in love, we are willing to do anything for another.

Love; however, is not about self-sacrifice. Love is not about giving up oneself, but expanding oneself. To mutually benefit, should be the guiding principle of all relationships. Self-sacrifice, or should I say, self-destruction, is detrimental to any altruistic relationship.

Once a relationship has run its course, is staying for the sake of the other really worth foregoing your happiness?
