Let’s Talk Motherhood and Sacrifice

What is the biggest sacrifice a woman can make for her family and children? Is it to put on hold her career in order to become a stay-at-home mom and devote all her time and energy to the upbringing of her children? Or is it to miss the unpriceable, non refundable, unique first years of her children’s life (at least partially) in order to work and contribute to her family’s financial stabilty and well-being?

Even if you think you have it all figured out yourself, what you might consider as the right answer to this question might not be tquite right for another. Why? Simply because there is no subject as personal and subjective as motherly sacrifice. Plus, when it comes to individual choices, there is no right or wrong, there are only different choices that suit different individuals and families according to their unique composition and circumstances.

What is sacrifice anyway?

Sacrifice is the act of giving up something valued for the sake of other considerations. And this is exactly why sacrifice is so fluctuant and subjective. Simply because the value of objects, activities or even people in itself depends on personal and individual perceptions which also vary enormously from a person to another. 

What is the biggest sacrifice a woman can make for her family and children? 

Only the woman in question can respond correctly, because only the woman in question can have a global and exhaustive evaluation of her family’s situation and where her children’s best interest lays. Whatever the choice a woman makes, at the end of the day she will be making an undeniably honorable sacrifice, it is up to her to identify how to minimize the losses and maximize the winnings.
