✨ Relationships and Compatibility ✨
Compatibility and the art of Joyful Compromise
In life you choose your friends and to some degree you choose the people you work with. In this setting you can somewhat control the level of compatibility. The real challenge lies in the closest relationships with your intimate partner, your family, parents, siblings and/or children
A relationship is like a contract between two individual people with different needs and wants, and in every relationship there will be areas were both parties are compatible and areas were they are not. The percentage of the initial compatibility will be a founding factor at the beginning of any relationship.
Over time the percentage of compatibility can shift or change, depending on the depth and focus in the relationship. The closer the relationship, the more nuances will arise!
Loving communication is key when building and fortifying a foundation for a happy relationship that will stand the proverbial “test of time”…So check in with each other! what are your needs, wants, desires and deepest fears? What brings you joy? What brings you pain? What opens your heart and mind? What makes you retreat, close down or contract?
Build the bridges of Joyful Compromise
Practice the art of Joyful Compromise by approaching every gap, between you and the other, with an attitude of love and compassion! If you need to compromise, remember that in essence a compromise is an agreement whereby nobody get’s exactly what they wanted, so drop any feeling of getting the short end of the stick! Making healthy, joyful compromises means you both reap the benefits of making that bridge into a win-win situation.
