The card I picked for today is Compromise, from the Ask Your Guides deck created by Sonia Choquette.  When I tune into this card I am hearing that someone reading this is in a situation where the lines are blurred with another person in their life….boundaries are not in place and it is causing tension within the situation.  This could be within the workplace or the home environment.  You may feel the other person is pushing their opinion and/or way of doing things causing you to clinch up out of fear of being controlled and dominated.  It is fine to quietly listen to what they have to say but you must speak up and hold your ground and share your thoughts….options….your side of things.  This situation is a two-way street and a partnership…..you are hearing what they have to say and now its time for them to hear what you have to say.  It is important to share your side of things politely….you may feel you are being pushed but merely pushing back will not help the situation.

Tap into your Wise Self…..try to understand where the other person is coming from and that they may not realize that you have a strong feeling/opinion that may be different from them.  You can meet in the middle and work together….taking into consideration both of your ideas on how to handle it….but it is very important that you speak up and stand your ground….share your thoughts because you are in this together…..and the only way to move forward successfully is if you establish your boundaries….speak your mind (politely)…..respect their opinion but respect you own opinion too.  You may be surprised at their response when you speak up.  If you respect yourself they will respect you!

Have a great day today and I will be back tomorrow with another card of the day!
