What is in a word???

com·pla·cent    [kuhm-pley-suhnt]

pleased, especially with oneself or one's merits, advantages, situation, etc., often without awareness of some potential danger or defect; self-satisfied: The voters are too complacent to change the government.

pleasant; complaisant.

Now excuse me if I am misunderstanding this term. I was thinking this word meant more like.... resigned to the situation... no real feelings. I guess I need another word to mean that.
