There are times when you are faced with situations where you are the one who has to adjust even though you know you are correct. You ask yourself, ‘I am correct, so why do I have to adjust?’ In these situations you can pacify your mind, by remembering the benefits of adjusting to maintain a relationship. Here they are:
Your energies to adjust have to be cultivated especially with those you do not get along with. These energies are already present with people you get along with. Inability to adjust is a weakness. Why is it possible for me to get along with everyone? The more you adjust, the more your energies will increase and your weaknesses will diminish. Right understanding will prevail only when all the wrong understandings are destroyed. Everyone gets along with easy-going and good-natured people, but when you learn to get along with difficult, stubborn, and harsh personalities, you have truly accomplished something.
No matter how brazen and shameful a person is, if you know how to maintain a relationship without losing your mind, it is well worth it. Losing your temper is futile. Nothing in this world will 'fit' you (nothing will adapt to you), but if you 'fit' with every situation or people, then this world will be good. If you attempt to make others 'fit' with you, this world will become awkward. Adjust everywhere. As long as you 'fit' into everything, there will be no problems.
As long as someone gets hurt in the slightest, on your account; its effect will fall upon you. So beware. If the other person keeps 'disadjusting' and you keep 'adjusting', then you will cross this worldly life. 'Fault is of the sufferer' if one is able to understand only this much, then not a single clash will remain in the home.
