    Is ‘compromise’ a good thing? It depends! ‘Agonizing’ is certainly not a healthy thing and so would ‘compromise’ at the opposite end of the scale be considered ‘healthy’? The problem with ‘compromise’ is this: it is something that the individual really does not want; the individual really wants it all his or her own way; this will more than likely lead to TOTAL SATISAFACTION! ‘Compromising’, on the other hand, would lead to a ‘middle ground’ scenario – meaning a ‘give and take ‘ situation – depending upon the nature of the situation. This ‘compromise’ could not lead to the same level of ‘total satisfaction’, but would reduce that satisfaction significantly. It ultimately means settling for an outcome that really the individual does not want! ‘Compromising’ may be considered ‘fair-minded’, it may be considered ‘decent’ and it may be considered ‘healthy’ for a society, but IN REALITY – it is always something that works against the natural grain! (if you catch my drift)
