The Daily Post : Compromise

We always find a way don’t we.

I reckon if you cut me open, the word ‘Compromise’ would run through me like a stick of rock.
I hate conflict and sometimes you reach a point where you have to compromise rather than argue a point.
As a foster parent in the past, I recall many instances of weighing up aspects of visiting children to those residential and things could get a little sticky!
I like to think I showed no preference or favouritism to either, taking into account what was needed, what was wanted, and what was affordable!
Food likes and dislikes were probably the most argued, the resident kids wondering why they had to eat liver but the visitor got a sausage in their casserole. The compromise followed that the kids all got a sausage from the casserole but had the liver gravy.

Compromise is a half promise, no-one getting exactly what they want but meeting somewhere in the middle that is acceptable to all.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
