Meet Me Halfway

Meeting someone halfway is the willingness to compromise and see another person’s point of view, instead of being solely focused on your own. And while I don’t personally like the word compromise, I think it’s an important element in order to have healthy relationships.

Compromising doesn’t mean you allow another person to talk you into their beliefs over your own. It has nothing to do with control. Compromising to me is saying I hear what you are saying and while I may not agree, I would like to meet you halfway so we both feel like we are being heard.

I think this meeting me halfway business is a good mindset to have. It lets you know that a person is willing to work with you in order to grow stronger, instead of giving up and using some excuse like you’re just too different for it to work.

It has taken me a long time to realize that if someone is not willing to meet you half way, then they certainly aren’t willing to work with you, and a person who doesn’t want to work with you, is a person who doesn’t really care for you.

If you’re not willing to meet someone halfway, then you should probably be on your way…to more dysfunctional relationships, because healthy ones require equal give and take.
