Don’t Try To Change People

We are all the same yet different. Everyone has something that sets them apart from the crowd. As we build relationships, we discover that people are not what we expected them to be.

Our natural instinct may be to change them by pointing out everything that bothers us. But that is not the correct approach. The other person will perceive you as pointing out their flaws and will resist accepting even if they have some flaws.

We should also accept that we all have flaws. Instead of being accused or singled out for it, we all want to be accepted for who we are. Yes, there is always room for improvement, and we can help each other overcome it.

It is essential to love and be loved. It is what makes us feel comfortable and wanted. When you truly love someone, you want to wish them all the happiness in the world. If it involves changing minor aspects of yourself, you would be willing to do so, or at the very least make an honest effort. It will make you a better person as a result.

Constructive criticism is a good way of saying things, but it does not work for sensitive people. As a result, we must be mindful of the person’s feelings and, if we truly want to change anything about them, we must find the strength in our love to do so.

  1. I concur. Trying to change someone would be the same as if you were trying to teach a pig to sing.
