Closing your eyes and blocking your ears isn’t going to make an ounce of difference to a situation, especially a financial reality. Examine the figures, look at the whole picture, and then you can make an informed choice. There is a chance you will receive less than you expected or something you had believed would go through hits a stumbling block and while the situation could benefit from a discussion, you may still have to settle for less. Other people appear to have the upper hand at present, however, this will change as time goes by. And although finances and self-worth are in the frame, this policy of acceptance could work well in other situations.
