A big problem we humans have is accepting the fact that the same goal can be accomplished using different methods to get there. A small difference my husband and I have is how our computer's taskbar is set up. Our goals are the same, in that we want to put shortcuts on our taskbar so that certain tasks are easy to access. His method of setting it up is just different then mine but it is difficult for him to accept that my way is good for me. This is just a small thing but the concept is the same for major differences. As long as we realize our goals are the same, then how we get there should not matter. Compromise would be so much simpler in relationships if we accepted that it is OK for others to do it their way as long as it gets done.
