Compatibility is the most overrated factor in relationships, whether they succeed or fail. And in today’s cancel culture, compatibility (or more aptly, incompatibility) serves as a willing alibi to terminate marriages, business partnerships and other kinds of alliances between people.
The fact is, kindness is probably more important. If you practice kindness, there are so many things you’d overlook that might have imperilled your relationships if you didn’t.
Never forget it. Kindness trumps compatibility.
