What's the word for surrendering yourself to someone else's expectations or authority or whatever, except not as passive as surrendering or submitting? You're ________ing yourself to someone/something, a word that makes it sound voluntary? Maybe also with a sense of fitting yourself into someone else's box? I'm sure there's a word for what I'm trying to say . . .
Sorry this is so random considering that I never post here.
/the first word that popped in my mind (because of all the times i've been in front of a judge) was non-contesting. Like when you plead No Contest because you don't want plead guilty but, you can't afford to go to trial (pleading not guilty). Which is totally F'd up.
But then I thought of the "...putting yourself in someone else's box" and, that would be conforming, maybe even adapting which is more instinctual and less voluntary. Or you could even say resigning, as in resigning to fate. but maybe your overlooking the simplest answer accepting. *shudders*
