Compromise is necessary in a relationship; the reason is simple – you are different than your partner so in order to make it work you have to give and take. However, there are certain limits. How much should you compromise on?
I am not lowering my standards for any man, period. I have watched my mother doing that for years for my father, when she found out he was sleeping with the helper. Listen ladies, keep your standards high!
You have to compromise to really make a relationship work. You cannot say you love someone and it doesn't affect your life to the point of some alterations. I am not saying you should throw your morals and values through the window, I am saying there are some things you can overlook to make it work.
You have to overlook certain things, yes, but not too much because you could possibly be overlooking the red flags. From my own experiences my advice is this – do not let anyone walk over you.
I am not overlooking anything. I am tired of men who want us women to lower the bar and they wouldn't even try to jump a little stone. I am tired of it!
Compromise is important, yes, but if I am compromising too much and if I don't see it being equalised, it will be a problem.
