It shouldn't become sacrificing. If you're sacrificing you're the one giving in for everything, and that's not how a relationship should work. For instance, let's say you want to go on a Cruz, and your boyfriend wants to go to a beach instead because it's less expensive. Compromise: You both decide to find a cheaper Cruz, or maybe you decide to shorten the time on the Cruz to make it cheaper. Sacrificing: You give in and say "fine, we'll go to the beach." A relationship is about trust and compromising, you have to meet each other half way not run to him, and he just sit there and relax.
Compromise is where each of you makes concessions, but sacrifice is typically one sided. The moment you realize that you are the only one doing something or ceding ground to keep your relationship going, you will be making sacrifices. Relationships are give and takes, but when it becomes one-sided, it becomes sacrifice on one part.

When you are the one who does it all. Compromise and relationships should be a two way street. Both of you giving and receiving. If it ever comes to the point, one of you is doing all the receiving, that's when it becomes sacrifice.
