Giving up things for Lent

I have come to realize that giving up things for lent is not about suffering. It’s not even about sacrificing as an end on itself.

Instead, sacrifice is a means to an end.

All things worth pursuing require some level of sacrifice. Exercising sacrifice makes us better at becoming better.

So if you look at giving up things as an exercise of becoming better, the sacrifice becomes more palatable, and even exciting.

So try giving up something good for the sake of something better. You will yourself become better in the process.
