We all have heard over and over again how important it is to compromise. We must comprise in all of our relationships. Professional and personal.
Having the spirit of compromise allows us to consider the needs of others and it gives us additional perspectives so we can make more enlightened, informed and gracious decisions. Compromise is important so each party will feel valued and appreciated, however compromise should never leave us feeling as if we have betrayed ourselves.
That level of compromise will cause us to be resentful because we put the needs of someone else above our own. Healthy compromise honors who we are and provides an opportunity for us to grow. Unhealthy compromise will leave us being less of who we are.
As we navigate our relationships lets do so in a way that empowers and inspires us to be our best self…not less of our self.
