It is natural to make concessions in relationships. We’re all essentially different and need to have the ability to negotiate differences if we want to let anyone get close.
However, we must set limits as to how far we’ll go to accommodate others around us. If not, we will find ourselves in a position of extreme inequality that might dilute our souls.
Making concessions should not make us feel as though others can express themselves freely, but we can’t.
Limiting our concessions will save us from being oppressed by inequality.
I’ve been realizing how many concessions I’ve made for people in order to make them feel comfortable… till I wasn’t!
From silly things to big things, we must assert ourselves.
Of course we should have a commitment to becoming better and not feeding unhealthy habits. But it’s all about balance.
