Let's make a deal
This week, we ask ourselves what it means to compromise. We also share what we’ve been reading, watching, listening to, and following recently.
But first, make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter, Around the Table Weekly. This week, we launched a segment in our newsletter called the ‘Cheering Section,’ where we champion things that we are loving, including you guys and the awesome products, projects, and creative endeavors you are participating in. AND we want you guys to get involved by nominating someone or something you think is worthy of our cheering section. You can either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to the newsletter directly.
What you’ll hear:
- How we define compromise
- When is compromise worth it and when is it not?
- The fruit of compromise in relationships
- What pop culture tells us about romance
- What we're reading, watching, listening to, and following
Can I quote you on that?
- “Compromise can be simplified to this: putting someone else’s needs before yours.” Maggie
- “I don’t want to get my way all the time.” Maggie
- “If you’re compromising and not speaking up because you don’t want to have a fight or because you are doubting your own voice or your own right to say something, then that is an unhealthy compromise.” Jacey
- “In relationships, you may have an ideal, but a person is not going to reflect that ideal back to you because that person is going to be imperfect.” Maggie
- “I still kinda wanna be the type of girl who can go to sleep with bugs. But I’m just not, and that’s ok.” Maggie
- “Close relationships sharpen and hold up a mirror to our most broken places.” Jacey
- “Uggh. Podcast nerds.” Jacey
