When the word COMPROMISE works it's way into any conversation, people begin to shift awkwardly within their seats because it is known that a discussion about differences and a battle to reach an agreement will begin. As self motivated individuals, we all become attached to the way we handle things and the way we live, but when it comes to engaging in relationships with others, we have to learn how to compromise and concede to some things in order to reach a common goal.
A romantic relationship is more than just sex. It is about caring for the next person enough to have these conversations to ensure longevity (if that is what you want), and working things out to build a stronger bond. Without compromise, a relationship leans towards an unbalanced reciprocation that soon leads to an one sided situation where infidelity creeps into frame.
When two people come together and decide to enter into a relationship, there is much that has to be discussed simply because separate and distinct personalities are coming together to make a union work. Each person will have different opinions about how the relationship should be developed and how issues should be resolved, and both individuals will have habits that may need to be reworked before committing to each other. This is where compromise comes in and when a serious negotiating conversation needs to take place. Without this conversation, assumptions creep into the equation causing miscommunication and a misunderstandings.
Deciding to have conversations about your desires and reaching compromise may not be something that you look forward to, however, when your desires and your preferences are put out In the open with clear and honest communication, nothing but clear and honest responses can be birth from the conversation. Once honesty becomes an element within the foundation of your relationship, then trust will come with ease and changes within the relationship will be able to be spoken about with less difficulty when they arise. Before reaching a discussion about compromise, each person's ego has to be deflated and set aside so that each person's views can be understood and accepted. So before entering into a discussion, leave your ego at the door and bring in your listening ear because listening is a huge part of the journey towards compromise.
