I was told that people made amazing compromises, later in life, to avoid being alone. I was in my thirties at the time. I didn’t really understand. I understand now as I’ve witnessed this myself.
I think the current collective mindset is heading for a violent correction. See – High-Flying People Come Down To Earth. Individuals will realize that a partner can’t provide you a blissful feeling, day in and day out for decades. It’s not realistic.
This is true of a job too. We have some idea these days that we’re supposed to love our jobs. If you’re lucky, this will be the case.
In other cases. you may not love your job but you may get some satisfaction, knowing you can do it. You have some talent or skill and you’re putting it to use.
In many cases a person may not like their job at all. It doesn’t matter. They have to do it anyway, to provide for themselves or their families. They look for satisfaction, outside their workday.
Have you compromised in your life?
I think some people equate “compromise” with “failure”. I tend to think compromise and maturity are more closely tied. Saturn, exalted in Libra.
What do you think.
