I had an argument with my best friend a couple of days ago about love and sacrifice.
My friend shared me a Korean music video about the love story of a pretty girl and a prominous photographer. One day, the girl accidentally dropped some chemical solution to her eyes at the guy’s studio. Her corneas were injured and she became blind. At the end of the story, the photographer gave his own corneas to save the girl’s eyes. Well, how would a photographer live without eyes?
Then a discussion came up… my friend said that love is about making sacrifices.
I disagree with that. In my humble opinion, sacrifice is external driven and involves doing or choosing something that one does not prefer, just for the sake of someone else.
For me, I don’t want anyone who loves me to make any sacrifices for me.
I want him to do things for me just simply because he wants to do them and he’s happy with it.
For me, wanting to do things is internal driven and choosing by preference. It’ll make more sense, right?
Then I watched “The Break Up”, a movie starred Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughnn. In the fight that led to the break up, Jen said the same thing, “I want u to do things because you want to do them, not because I need you to do them..!”. Aha… a nice support for my statement…
What d u think??
