Is it settling?
Where do you draw the line between compromise and settling?
We put up with things not being exactly the way we want them to be in the name of comprise in a relationship. But when does it stop being compromise and start being settling for less than you want, less than you deserve?
Some will say that it’s compromise as long as it goes both ways. But relationships are never 50:50... someone is always giving more. Ideally it goes back and forth, but when do you know it’s not going to swing back the other way? When do you know you’ve given up what you want in the name of keeping the relationship going?
If we used our heads we would walk away but we don’t, we use our hearts and hearts are really stupid.
