Is it feasible to say,
“I know what I’m doing is wrong, but to not do it is even more wrong, so until another option emerges, c’est la vie?”
Or is that just cowardice and a desperate attempt to justify ethically-flawed behavior?

Does it make sense to say,
“I deserve better but I’m not into deprivation either, so I’ll take what I can get for now until a better offer comes along?
And is this reasonable compromise or settling for less than I deserve?

Don’t want to undercut myself but is pricing myself out of the market any more honorable?

Who sets the fair market value of a freewheeling 43-year-old divorced under-employed female writer/artist mother of two teenage girls in 2015?
