I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Origins ~ Hanged Man/Sacrifice

Sacrifice is a willingness to give up something or give more of ourselves than we might have to spare. It is a choice, never an obligation or something we can sell for something in return.

I'm reminded by this card that choice doesn't give us the option or right to then use that sacrifice as a verbal stick to beat someone with. Do it or don't, but shut up and move on.

"The sacrifice which causes sorrow to the doer of the sacrifice is no sacrifice. Real sacrifice lightens the mind of the doer and gives him a sense of peace and joy." ~ Mahatma Gandhi 1869-1948

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
