Compromise

Compromise

Some say that the sum of our choices is what defines us. The other three parts of life which can mold us, circumstances, options and results, are not under our own control.

Or I thought so.

But it is not really our choices which define us. It is our compromise with them.

Taking a choice is quite easy. But, how far are you going to go with it? And much more importantly, how far can take you your compromise with a choice?

Let’s see.

Human behaviour comes from three main sources: desire, emotion and knowledge.
Plato

Canalising those three willingly, can give us a purpose.

Whenever we set a target for us, due to taking a choice, and staying compromised to it to follow it until the ultimate consequences, then, we can shape our purpose in life.

After a while, the reason and the why do not matter anymore, and what it remains is what we feel. This is the human nature. We fight it, try to deny it, but we lie to ourselves.

Under an orderly appearance, truth is human beings are without control, only slaves of causality.

Causality is the compound of circumstances, options and results which are the product of our will, choices and our compromise with them. The question is, if we are going to influence the causality which surrounds us, or let others to do it.

Choosing a purpose we can redefine this causality, and thus our entire life.

We are here because of our purpose, because without purpose we would not exist. Purpose is what created us. Purpose connects us, pulls us, guides us, compels us, binds us.

But, how to define a purpose?


Many people spend their lives thinking that their Vocation or Profession is their Purpose. But you need to love what you do.

At this point, I would like to call your attention to the heading picture.

I saw compromise and purpose here.

Two oldies compromised to each other to be together, enjoying life, nature and freedom, not taking care of what others can think.

It is my best wish for all of you, to be able to, one day, having the joy those in the picture have while floating in the air.

Because this is all what we are going to get of life:

-Some brief moments of joy, which might last a blink.

Make sure you don’t miss them.

David, this post is good, and because it's brief, it's twice good. :) The heading photo drew my attention. Before reading your post, my thought was almost the same as yours... how these two enjoy life. Thank you for reminding us about what's really important in life. Wishing you the same.

#6 Compromise, by definition, means "an agreement or settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions" or "acceptance of standards that are lower than is desirable.". In the other hand, commitment is more "the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.", or "an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action"
Synonyms to Compromise: agreement, understanding, settlement, terms, accommodation;
Synonyms to Commitment: dedication, devotion, allegiance, loyalty, faithfulness, fidelity, bond, adherence, attentiveness, responsibility, obligation, duty, tie, charge, liability, burden, pressure
In the never-ending internal negotiation, we should maintain with ourselves, in order to enhance ourselves, we can't forget we need to, sometimes, indulge ourselves, give us some "truces". Otherwise, it becomes a "burden" instead of an "agreement"
The idea is to make it an enjoyable journey, not a punishment.
This is why I prefer compromise to commitment.

#1 Baltasar Gracian, a Spanish writer, wrote in 1647 . "The good thing, if brief, twice good; and even the bad, if small, not so bad."
The most difficult thing on this buzz was to cut the crap, that is, to save the obvious. Even though, what is written here is obvious too, nothing that anybody wouldn't know. Still, we tend to forget the obvious.
I look forward with great anticipation to your buzz

And so you are dear @Clau Valerio. This buzz sums up so many great ideas in a nutshell.

Undoubtedly, the commitment will always be the ability of people to be aware of the importance of fulfilling something we have previously agreed. When we commit ourselves to something or someone, we must be aware of all the implications this entails and we are accepting the responsibility to fulfill and fulfill what we have committed ourselves to. Commitment is what helps us turn a promise into reality despite adversity, makes us try our best to meet our goals, plan the path we are going to follow, is the force that drives us to do something difficult or sacrificed. We feel alive, and they help us to evolve and grow personally.
I AM COMPLETELY IN AGREEMENT WITH YOU @David Navarro López. Like @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I think you're great !!!
