Do not settle for people who do not appreciate you, who do not know how lucky they are.

I hope you learn how to let go of a love that won’t love you back.  I hope you learn how to let go of the stories you tell yourself, of the ways in which you have let all that has hurt you, all that has bruised your soul, convince you that you needed to settle for less than what your heart desired. 
- A Gentle Reminder, Bianca Sparacino

Deep in the night, still awake as the house sailed west, tracking the moon, we came together in the dark like knives, like wild animals, fiercely, drawing blood even---something we referred to next morning as 'love-making.' We didn't tell each other of our dreams. How could we? But once in the night, awake, I heard the house creak, almost a sigh, then creak again. Settling, I think it's called.
Raymond Carver, from “Nearly,” A New Path to the Waterfall (The Atlantic Monthly Press, 1989)

Ponder Stibbons was one of those unfortunate people cursed with the belief that if only he found out enough things about the universe it would all, somehow, make sense. The goal is the Theory of Everything, but Ponder would settle for the Theory of Something and, late at night, when Hex appeared to be sulking, he despaired of even a Theory of Anything.
Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent

she longs for the mornings, but she settled for the nights, and if it cannot be love, well, then, at least it is not lonely

We are no more responsible for the evil thoughts that pass through our minds than a scarecrow for the birds which fly over the seedplot he has to guard. The sole responsibility in each case is to prevent them from settling.

Sorry to bother, this is re: settling via kneeling post, but what if your knees are fucked and sitting in that specific position (b4 ppl say pillow etc) screws ýour back up and has you chucking down painkillers like candy?
It's important to understand that the physical act of kneeling is a mere "signifier." A lot of us (I'd wager the majority of us) are unable to glide to the floor with the ballerina grace of those whisper-thin 20-something models you see on your dash. Personally, I could get down there just fine ... but I'd never be able to get back up again, not without a lot of help. Here's something that I hope helps. I had a Follower years ago who was in a wheelchair. She "knelt" by placing her hands in her lap, palms up, and lowering her eyes. She was kneeling just as much as anyone else. What I'm getting at is to focus on the thing signified, not the mechanics of the thing. Work with your partner to find a modification (it might be something as simple as sitting in a chair like the person I described) and focus on the goal of the thing: to spin down your brain so it reaches a calm, "settled" place.

Today is a BIG day!
Today, at 2:46 pm, Elmar my dæmon had officially settled in my Jungian Archetype form of an albatross. We found that it had been harder for him to shift recently and this morning he couldn't shift at all. It wasn't until the afternoon that I heard him say, "I think I settled". To which we tried to visualize him as a Russian Blue cat and he couldn't shift. So yeah, he settled!
Albatross dæmons are apart of the Explorer archetype, if applying the Jungian Archetypes to dæmonism and form-finding. Symbolically linked with messages and journeys, Elmar's form is a constant reminder that I must always be open to learning new things and taking new adventures. He would like to celebrate with Cher and some soft, folksy pop from the late '90s and early '00s.

Some facts about albatrosses
They are the largest birds in the world
Their wings can go up to 12ft in wingspan and they have little tendons in their shoulders that lock out the wings once in full flight
They mate for life
In both Western sea-fairing and Hawaiian mythology/folk lore, albatrosses are seen as having to deal with the dead. Sailors who were lost at sea had their souls in albatrosses in the Western folklore and in Hawaii they were seen as sacred manifestations of their ancestors.
They cannot be found in the North Atlantic, but fossils indicate they did reside there at one point
They scavenge, dive, and surface seizing for food
Thank you all for listening!
How did you find out that your dæmon settled? Have they settled yet? Feel free to tell us if comfortable! All information came from the Wikipedia page on albatrosses.

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

The truth is, when you settle for an almost, you settle for almosts in every single aspect of a relationship.  Almost happy. Almost valued. Almost chosen. Yes, the connection holds weight, there is depth there, but it will always exist on the surface of what your soul craves. When you settle for an almost, you’re left waiting to receive the kind of love you have been giving someone all along, you’re holding out for something real, and pointed, and full, to grow from so much uncertainty. But you deserve more than that.  You deserve certainty.

Maybe sometimes it’s less painful to cut off one’s wings than to realize one is incapable of flying...

If you can find a level of exploitation you are comfortable with, you might just make it.

He wondered sometimes if her reason for going out with him was that he filled a gap without causing her pain.
