The Ability to Compromise

I believe I have many positive qualities I bring to all of my relationships in my life, be they with my coworkers, friends, family, or a boyfriend.  As we mature we refine our qualities and everyone in our life helps to either buff or hone those qualities as needed.

I think one key quality to any lasting relationship is the ability to compromise.  And recently I’ve noticed a lot of compromising going on at my end of the relationship.  A few examples:

  • I make sure he has a good, healthy breakfast every morning – even if I’m running late for work
  • I always clean up after him when he leaves his stuff around the house
  • When I’m reading and he wants to cuddle, I don’t get upset that I can’t see my book as easily (or sometimes even at all)
  • He makes a lot of noises when sleeping next to me at night, but instead of being bothered by this I find it rather soothing knowing he’s there beside me
  • When he has a lot of energy he tends to fidget with various items around the house, usually making a lot of noise; I use this as a reminder that we all need to step away from the hum-drums and remember to play often
  • Sometimes he is persistent with demanding my attention when I need to be doing other stuff, but again he teaches me to break way from working all the time

Learning to compromise and to accommodate others into your life is always a challenge, but I think he is definitely a keeper!

One Mile Smile

by Sarah Clouser

Mind of Chaos

How easy it would be, to sit here, telling the world that my struggles were all due to outside sources, that my 2am, scattered-sleep nights were caused by a destructive family life, or the villainous boys I met in high school. How easy it would be to place the blame on undeserved circumstances. I am a strong believer in the “we make our own choices” concept of life, and that life does not discriminate in placing innocent people, in hard paths of being. For me, the life-defining choice was to allow myself to fall victim to my own mind, and for my inside, tyrannical anxiety, to control my outside actions. That moment, whenever it might have been, has visited me in nightmare-like ways, all throughout my young adulthood.
