The book “Wired to Connect” allows readers to find a connection between their mental status and healthy and strong relationships. Many people agree that a certain level of compromise is needed for a good relationship but if one is compromising on everything, they will lose their identity and who they are as a person.
- Amy Banks and Leigh Ann Hirschman’s new book, “Wired to Connect: The Surprising Link Between Brain Science and Strong, Healthy Relationships,” shares how important it is to have relationships with people who understand you.
- It is true that compromise is required in a healthy relationship, but there are limits to how much of ourselves we should suppress.
- There is a limited amount of space for neural pathways, if you want the good ones to stay you must starve the negative ones that are competing for space.
“Too much compromise may result in a loss of self and personal identity and an imbalance in the relationship.”
