Take me to the moon

How far would you go for someone you love? How far would you want someone else to go for you?

I’d like to say I’d be willing to sacrifice my all for a person I love — to a point (guess that’s not quite ‘my all’ huh?). I wouldn’t go so far as to do something illegal, for example. I know love is about give and take and compromise sometimes, but if my loved one asked me to do something illegal, I feel like that would be asking me to do something outside of who I am, against my core being. I don’t know how I could do that and still be the same person they loved or the person I claim to be.

How far would I want someone else to go for me?? I’d say likewise. Willing to sacrifice time, money, space, even an organ if need be. But similarly, if that person felt they had to sacrifice their principles to do something for me, even if it would make me happy, I don’t know how I’d feel about that. Even if it was a life-saving measure? Hmm…I guess this is why what-if scenarios are so tricky. You know what you think you’d do, but when real life hits, anything can happen.
