Compromise or sacrifice - what would you choose in what you love to do?

Tough. And compromise, is in itself, sacrifice.

I suppose when it comes to two people together, it has to be a little of both, but if the other truly loves you, he wouldn't ask of any sacrifice of you.

But that's my opinion only, of course, and I know it's not as simple as I put it to be. Interests clash, lines are blur, and often cross each other.

But ultimately (and personally) I would never knowingly seek to deny my girl of what she truly wants.

In matters of relationships, I would say compromise, because I don't think that I could ever be sure enough that the other person would sacrifice something for me if a time that necessitated it arose. I would much rather not back them into a potential corner and would seek to find a ground that was mutually beneficial instead.

if we're talking about love here, I'd sacrifice it all to make her happy. if it's like with art and whatnot, stuff I enjoy to do, I'd compromise

My very existence and happiness is based on the fact that I am able to be myself and be geniunely happy with who that person is. In this respect, I find it difficult to compromise or sacrifice who I am. It may sound selfish, but in all honesty, I don't feel I should have to do either of these things. Obviously, the small things, like an argument with a loved one, or making plans for the weekend, can be resolved with both compromise and sacrifice. But for the things I really love to do, for speaking my mind, for living life, I wouldn't choose either of those options.

neither of them if it was so easy to choose. But I do them both and this plagues me. To compromise a life that is so fragile is like a sin, to sacrifice yourself for life that is so "full of sound and fury" is pointless.

How can you ever compromise something that you love?

Sacrifice. Giving up the old implies accepting the new, and change brings contentment.

Both a very lame and a very vague question. Neither one is good, but you have to do both.

It all depends on what it is that you love. If it is in a relationship, then i will sacrifice all that needs to be sacrificed, even if it is only a compromise that is needed, although i may not do this at all times. If you love anything, then you will always be willing to sacrifice everything you have, and if you arent, you dont really love it. Compromise is something everyone must do everyday to live, because you cant interact with others doing only what you want, unless you want to be thought of as selfish a little bit...but these are just my thoughts, and have no relvance to anything but my mind.

is this serious?
sacrifice is love. when i love her, I am not an argument.

Okay everyone is talking about relationships...but in just the general aspect I think that compromise is very important, because you may not always get exactly what you want, but something just as good comes along and if you are too stubborn and not able to compromise you will let a good thing pass you up. I do think that compromise and sacrifice go hand in hand though. Because compromising means that sacrificing something so that everyone is content. I think people should be well trained in both areas...they will make your life alot easier, in relationships....friendships.....and every other kinda ship.....

Compromise is a sacrafice. It is as simple as that. If you compromise, you're giving something up to make things equal between two (or more) people...or sometimes things.

Sacrifice. Giving something up 'proves' the love in that you know that waht you are giving up is nothing in comparison to what you're getting.

both and neither.

when it comes to love, i feel you can do neither in the sense that any action you take should be because of that love. and since that love is in itself the ultimate gain, what you have choosen to "sacrifice" or "compromise" isn't really important or and in a sense you haven't done either.

its simply a readjustment of vision. its realizing what is the most important thing in the world to you. and never allowing THAT to be compromised or sacrificed.

i think too often today people "compromise" and "sacrifice" thinking of it as some sort of barter. i give this up and i get this.

but if its love, then the giving up should be in itself worth it.

With someone that I loved, I would compromise for them, to make them happy but try and make it clear that I was doing my best.

Something I like doing? I would sacrifice it for the person I loved.

Always compromise... but, if you must sacrifice something which you truly love for love, reassess that love, because the one true love wouldn't require a sacrifice of something that you truly love.

Never sacrifice or compromise something you love. And a person who loves you should never ask you to do so.

Both, neither. Anything for true love.

compromise in a case of love would mean you'd be holding on to thepast sacrifice would leave room for the future.. however u never know what the tide wil bring, id sacrifice it all to make my love happy... wether it ment sacrificing me being with her in the end you realize that there really isnt any out there for you ull find sum1 else and know that that person will be happy cuz of u and youll b happy because of some1 else in the future to come

Sacrifice = compromise.
Carpe Diem. Sieze the day. If you truly and absolutely love someone, don't give up. Love always means compromising something in youor life to make another person happy. Even though that person may not ask you to give up anything. You do it any way because it feels right.

Love-Compromise, only if no-one gets hurt. Remember: It works both ways. Doing anything EVIL for another is not compromising.
