Within our personal relationship(s) with others, it is important that we try to find ways to equally compromise, when it comes to doing or having other interests, hobbies, plans or events that may defer .
Otherwise, there will hardly be anytime shared or balance within the relationship, for one of both inability to commit to compromising a little by being present and available enough to support , see or share in an activity or interest that is deemed to help each grow in understanding . Yet it is better to compromise than it is to sacrifice.
" Quality time is my love language."
Life is getting much busier, and more people are requesting my presence and appearence at different social events. I also have certain personal hobbies , rest periods , leisure activities of interests, and personal rituals that I like to do on a daily or weekly basis. Yet, I am trying to find the balance within my personal or social engagements with other people.
If I am asked to do something as an activity or invite, I will most likely say yes , unless there is a conflict. If at first I seem disinterested, I may compromise (and do it for the joy of quality time) and reconsider based upon the other person's passion or personal interest, I will go. If there isn't a conflict, of course.
Yet, then there is I. If I try to introduce a hobby, interest, event and the other person seems, disinterested, or stubborn, I won't force it over and over. I will just go out and enjoy taking pleasure in the activity or event. And if I seem unavailable, it's most likely that I am out doing what you decline.
With me I like routine and my hobbies are routine, and I LOVE quality time.
I will compromise but I will not sacrifice my interests, or spending time on my interests, because no one or someone is disinterested (when they haven't even tried) nor spent any quality time with me, in learning to about the activity ,event , or intrests that makes me the person that I am.
