I had a debate last night about the art of compromising and the fact that it isn’t in my personal dictionary! Why you ask? It’s very simple. If one is to ‘do what makes you happy’ and lives to the mantra of ‘follow your bliss’ then compromising isn’t going to work, surely?
I’ve had situations where I’d ultimately opt out of doing a particular things with particular people as it leads to internal unhappiness even though outwardly I’d have the facade of being ‘fine’ or ‘okay’. The person I had this debate with (who is a counsellor) said that compromising will make the other person happy, but what about me? If one can afford first class, should one fly in economy (metaphorically speaking).
Don’t get me wrong, I am a very charitable individual, outgoing, and definitely a lover of life. So if I choose not to compromise not to forsake my own happiness and potentially bring negative energy to my peers. Does that make me a villain? I feel that people are confused about how to follow their own bliss or maybe my energy helps them find theirs?
Is there a thin line between the 2?
I think you should follow your own bliss, this way your are in accordance with your highest frequency/expression. What you describe, to me at least, is keeping your frequency malleable to blend or adjust with anothers, hence sacrificing yourself for anothers world, slowing down the evolution of both souls.
Following your own bliss may create discomfort in another, but that is then catalyst to follow their own highest expression.
Of coarse their is a happy medium also, I tend to to adjust myself accordingly for various souls if i see that it may help them. I am “happy” to sacrifice my “happiness” if it means i can help another. But once i see they are not willing to adjust, my happiness comes first.
