We have been taught that compromise is important in all our relationships.  When is it appropriate to put our own needs and values first?  Is there a time when it is necessary to compromise, and when is it in our highest and best interest to do so?

However, when does compromise become sacrifice?  Robin discusses how when we sacrifice our own inner knowing and integrity, we do in fact create separation.

Often times, we then experience anger and resentment as a result, and then we destroy the closeness we are attempting to create.  We are invited to pay attention to our inner feelings, and act in a way that is empowering to all our relationships.
