Can't change other people.

Post by Eino » 8 years ago

How many times have we attempt the impossible and tried to change other people,  but attempting this is a waste of time!

I can't tell you how many times I have tried to change other people, and I have failed. There was one person in particular with whom I am very close, this person was not happy with their life, they were bored and lonely. For years I tried to change them, to help them lead a more productive life.

Guess what, it didn't work. I just ended up being frustrated, until I realized that I couldn't change them until they changed themselves.

As much as we want to, we all need to understand you truly cannot change other people.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.

In the nutshell it boils down to this;
Change of attitude can improve friendships, and all around quality of your life.  Nobody can do it for you.
