But there is a right time for everything, and it's critical to pick the right time.
I do things for those I love but do these because I love them and not because I 'sacrifice' for them. Love is a much greater and stronger motivation. But of course there are limitations and you need to make your rules. And don't step over the baseline. Do not pretend you can do things that you can't, a lot of reasons behind.
I have learned to show people if I want respect or recognition but not by bragging. I earn respect and love by acting on things I believe in and not by words only.
There are things that may be better unsaid or burried because it may hurt someone or make them worry for nothing. I consider consequences and I should be responsible for what I said or do.
Staying calm amid this draining of physical energy because of this bloody cough isn't easy but I know things will become better and I will be feeling great and well again.
