Adjustment / Compromise. Same thing? At the end of the day will I feel the same way if I “compromise” compared to if I “adjust”?
Words are powerful. Compromises often imply we are losing something or settling. I have goals, ideas and dreams I want to pursue. Life happens and things change. I change. I have had dreams I put aside “until later” and when later comes I am no longer interested. Sometimes, I’m not even the same person. Did I compromise my dreams waiting? I don’t think so – life happens and that is when adjustments come into play.
When life happens we should adjust to it. Circumstances change from family, job to health. If we think in terms of making adjustments to what is happening in our lives, not making compromises I think it is a healthier way to live.
We are not losing or settling when life throws us a curveball. We are adjusting to circumstances and maybe even thinking outside the box. I do believe if we can put a different spin on this, it can make life easier and maybe even more enjoyable.
We’re adjusting. No big deal – it might even adjust into something better. Who knows?
