Love & Relationships | Learning To Compromise

It's Not All About You

Compromising.  It’s one of those things that we expect others to do for us, yet we aren't always willing to bend a little for them.  It consists of learning, understanding, communicating, accepting, willingness and that state most of us hate to be in- vulnerability.  Sometimes, in order for you to make your relationship work, you have to be willing to bend for your significant other, and they have to be willing to do the same for you.  When you’re in a relationship, you have to be willing to make sacrifices, because it’s not just about you. 

Compromise is all about coming to a mutual agreement.  In order to do that you must be willing to communicate.  You won’t always have the same expectations, so discuss your wants and needs with one another.   Surely, as times goes by you will both grow and change.  At that point, discuss your wants and needs again.  Constantly change within your relationship as you are changing as individuals.  You should always be on the same page.

Now of course, there will be times when you can’t come to an agreement, which is natural.  That’s when either you, or your significant other will have to reconsider your expectations and decide which route to take.  It may not always be easy getting to that decision, but overcoming those small bumps will only make your relationship stronger for the future obstacles ahead.  After all, they do say that no one promised that it would be easy.

Before we enter a relationship we date a person for a while to find out their ways, get to know them and see if the both of you are compatible.  9 times out of 10 you find out their ways before you make the relationship “official”.  You’re in that relationship for a reason, and you love that person.  You accept them for who they are, flaws and all.  It shouldn't be had to compromise when you've known how they are all along.  If you weren't going to be willing to compromise within your relationship, you wouldn't have entered it.  Make things easier on yourself and your loved one by learning to be fair.  After all, how can you expect others to do for you if you aren't willing to do the same for them?  Don’t forget that relationships are a balance of give and take.  

Compromising Is Key,
