Even if....

Even if the piggy is in love with its butcher, is it wise to discuss the price of ham ?



Seriously.. have you ever helped and given with your heart, even when you were fully aware of the personal cost ?

Re: Even if....

Sometimes one must be so selfish and egocentric that one helps somebody goes before yourself: taking one for the team.

Re: Even if....

I suppose, 'allowing' my hubby to take a job in Switzerland while I stayed behind in the UK missing him terribly.
It did work out well for me in the end though.
Does that count?

Exactly

It does work out well in the end, and if it hasn't yet, then it's not the end


But don't we all sometimes tend to do what makes somebody else happy, even if it's going to hard or difficult ?
Or should the piggy never discuss the price of ham ?

When something goes on for a longer time one will be discussing the price of ham with the piggy at one point or another, or you don't because the piggy ran out already.

Relationships especially are like scales, either party gives and takes a bit onto the scale, as long as it stays level all is fine, when it tips over to the other side one of the piggies falls off...
