Life isn’t always going to give us everything we want. And that’s okay. That’s just how life is. We aren’t always going to have all our expectations met. But that’s why it’s always important for us to value the things that we do have. We learn how to take the things that life throws our way and we make the most out of them. It’s essential that we are all able to learn the value of compromise in this world. We don’t live in a perfect world where everything is going to go our way. We are going to have to learn to settle for the things that we do have – and there is value to be had in that.
However, it’s also important for you to be able to draw the line. Yes, you can teach yourself to compromise and settle for certain things but you need to set boundaries for yourself. It can be convenient enough to just keep on settling for something even when it’s less than what you deserve. And that’s bad. You should never have to settle for having a mediocre love life. Sure, no love is perfect. But that doesn’t mean that your love story should be anything less than magical. Love, in its purest form, will always have the power to change peoples’ lives. Love is something that you should never have to settle for. It’s supposedly the one thing that makes life worth living for. And so, you would never want it to be something simple and mediocre. You would always want it to be magical and full of meaning.
Yes, you should be willing to make compromises with the men that you’re with. You can’t be having unreasonable expectations after all.
