I am looking for a word that describes the balancing effect of the situation. This word is used when a certain action taken as an output it has advantages from one point of view but also disadvantages from the other point of view.
Here are a few words:
(Definitions from Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English)
if two or more things balance out, the final result is that they are equal in amount, importance, or effect
• Sometimes I look after the kids and sometimes John does – it all balances out.
Examples from the Corpus
• Sometimes we have a slight loss and sometimes a slight surplus, but over time they balance out.
if things even out, or if you even them out, the differences between them become smaller
SYN level out
• The differences in their income should even out over time.
a balance between different people, groups, or forces that compete with each other, so that none is stronger than the others and a situation is not likely to change suddenly
•The government is anxious not to upset the economic equilibrium.
a state in which you are calm and not angry or upset
•She struggled to recover her equilibrium.
I can also think of counterbalance and equalize as two other verbs that may come handy for you depending on the context you're going to use them.
