A Silent Support: Understanding the True Meaning of Sacrifice

12 Sept 2023

I recently invested in a start-up, but had bad luck and lost a certain amount of money. I was very discouraged and looked sad all day long. However, my wife seemed to be fine. She spent a long time shopping in the shopping mall every day, and her purchases seemed to be quite high.

One day, after my wife went shopping, I accidentally opened her bag and found that there was nothing to buy in it. At most, I bought some gadgets and daily necessities. I suddenly realized that during this period of time, my wife went out to send time every day, not because she was a shopper, but because she felt sorry for my loss and depression, and wanted to give me a little comfort through her own.

I re-examined my performance during this period and found that I was so self-pitying that I ignored my wife's dedication and consideration. She knew that my investment failure would have a big impact on my confidence, but she never mentioned it in front of me, nor did she blame me too much. She just silently tried her best to make me happy so that I could be happy as soon as possible. Adjust your mentality and regain your strength.

That night, I welcomed my wife home and sincerely thanked her. I said: Dear, thank you for your considerate care of me during this time. I understand your real intention of going out shopping every day. You are like a good and sensible doctor who works silently to heal my wounds, and you are like a good and considerate coach who tries every means to motivate me and help me regain my confidence. I am so lucky to have a wife like you. "

My wife was startled at first, and then she smiled with satisfaction. She said to me: Fool, we are husband and wife, why do we need to thank each other for supporting each other. I'm just doing my duty. I'm very happy that you can get back on your feet and get back on your feet. "

I was deeply moved by my wife's words, and I realized once again that having such a partner around me who understands me, loves me, and encourages me is already my greatest wealth. This is what I really need to cherish. All financial gains and losses seem so small in comparison. I decided to let go of the regrets just now, look forward to the future with my wife, and plan for greater development in the next step.

This episode made me deeply realize that the meaning and value of life does not lie in the size of your wealth or the success of your career, but in whether you have people around you who truly care about you. My wife's thoughtfulness and dedication have eased the pain of loss for him and me during this period, and also made me understand that no matter how the environment changes, as long as we are still together, we will be able to overcome all difficulties and usher in a brighter future.

On the road of life, failures and setbacks are inevitable, but it is important to know how to get out of the shadow of failure. Sometimes we are so focused on what we have lost that we lose sight of the more precious things we still have around us. Only by learning to let go, let go of the past, let go of regrets, can our hearts truly look forward. The lesson from my failure this time is: don't be influenced by temporary gains and losses, and know how to cherish the most important things.

The thoughtfulness of my wife also reminded me that as a husband, I should learn to love, understand and support my wife. Every bit of my wife's contribution in life should not be ignored or taken for granted by me. I have to learn to feel my wife’s contribution with my heart, understand her needs with my heart, and give me support and encouragement when she is down like her. This is perhaps something I need to keep reminding myself and learning as a husband.

Although this incident was small, it gave me some insights and gave me a new understanding of life. The true meaning of life does not lie in wealth and career, but in the people around us. It lies in whether we have learned to cherish the people around us who truly love each other, whether we have given support to others when they need it, and whether we have helped others when they failed. I will keep these insights in mind and apply them to my life and care for my wife. I believe that as long as we, husband and wife, work together with one heart and one mind and walk hand in hand through the road of life, all difficulties and hardships will be easily solved. I am ready for a new journey in life, together with my wife.
