In general, it would be Ling Er..the difference is that Yue Ru only had Xiao Yao to think about..she didnt have any other purpose in life, it seemed like it was all about him and his happiness..
Ling Er on the other hand has to constantly keep in mind her responsibility as a Nu Wa dsecendant, her role as the princess of Nan Zhao Guo, to ensure happiness of her people.. and at the same time wish to be with her loved one~ which is difficult to balance. Her way of showing her affection to Xiao Yao is for him to be happy~ she thought that if he stayed with her, she would only be a burden to him, so she tried to push him away~ at the cost of her happiness... Though Jin Yuan said that rather than to love, why not understand.. She wanted the best for him, and although that's not what Xiao Yao wanted, from her judgement she thought what she did was right.

We never really got to see her experience, or how she was feeling during the times she went missing... except we assume she was terrified realising she's a snake demon, and ran away hiding so her Xiao Yao ge ge wouldn't see her form.

Yue Ru did sacrifice her life for Xiao Yao, but it was willingly, she died in peace, knowing she saved someone she loved.
Ling'er never wanted to die, for her country, for Xiao Yao. In the end, she was in great pain, but she held on for him. The ultimate sacrifice for both of them was to let go.
