Compromise

Today, everything in my life seems like a compromise. A compromise in which I've had to give up something important or several important things in order to have what I have. Today, I wonder if these compromises are worth it, whether what I have is worth having. In all this, thank God for Tot's smile and jubilance, without which things would be a whole hell of a lot worse.

How can I tell whether these compromises are worth it, just the cost of doing business, just the way it is and I should toughen up and not be such a whiner? My feeling about this fluctuates. Today, well, today just sucks.

Therapy tomorrow. That's good. And that's all.

Do you like the band The Indigo Girls? Their album Poseidon and the Bitter Bug has a song that says this about compromise:

"Here's what I find about compromise: Don't do it if it
Hurts inside, cause either way you're screwed, eventually
you'll find. You may as well feel good; you may as well
Have some pride." ("Second Time Around")

I think that's about the truest thing I could say about compromise. Hugs to you!
