nothing comes for free

There are sacrifices that seem worthwhile


there are sacrifices that you can’t even figure out

why you’re doing it.

A wise man said that you can have everything in this world

if you sacrifice everything for it.

But what he meant was…

“nothing comes without a price.”

So before you go into battle,

you better decide how much you're willing to lose.

Too often,

going after what feels good

means letting go of what you know is right,

and letting someone in

means abandoning the walls

you've spent a lifetime building.

Of course,

the toughest sacrifices

are the ones

we don't see coming,

when we don't have time to come up

with a strategy to pick a side

or to measure the potential loss.

When that happens,

when the battle chooses us

and not the other way around,

that's when the sacrifice

can turn out to be more than we can bear."
