Accommodating the Other Person

Being accommodating is a conflict management style that is sometimes appropriate for the person and circumstance. There are other times though when accommodating translates into appeasing, yielding, giving up and compromising what is important to us.  In many cases when we choose to accommodate we later experience regret, a loss of self-esteem and self-respect, and we end up resenting the other person.

How will you accommodate someone else’s needs in a situation – when it appears appropriate to do so – without giving up on yourself?
