If you want to change anyone then start with yourself

You all love certain things about yourselves and detest some of them and expect people to accept you with all your strengths and flaws. Then why is it that you expect people to change and sacrifice their habits for you? Why do you secretly hope that people will give up some of their goals and change some of their habits for you?

Many times you tend to think that you know what’s best for others, but to be honest, by doing that you are trying to align their habits and goals to yours. You may gift wrap the word ‘change’ with the words such as motivate and inspire but the bottom line is that you are changing them and trying to fool yourself. It’s very important that you accept people for who they are and not what you want them to be because the process of changing others can be quite exhausting and frustrating. It would be like sailing your boat against the flow of the river and all your efforts would be futile. Each one of you know how you want to be treated by others but fail to understand that people too want to be treated in the same way. So it would be unfair to enforce change upon others. Moreover, rather than focussing your time and energy on changing others it’s better to introspect oneself and concentrate on bringing on the change in yourself. So, don’t try to change people. That is not your job. If you want to change anyone then start with yourself.

Remember, “When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.”-Andy Warhol

All the Best and Stay in Touch.
