Have you ever tried to change someone and failed miserably?

Or tried to change yourself against your heart's desire to fit in and be valued by others and failed?

Well, I have. Why?

Because you can never force people into changing their ways just because you think you know what's best for them. Even if you honestly do see a much better way, it still won't work because nobody really changes for someone else.

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy.

A person can only truly change for themselves and only when the timing is perfect for understanding the real reason behind the need for this growth!

A real life-altering change comes from deep within, from the core of your being, the moment you understand that this change is actually a way to make your life a whole lot better.

So don't ever force yourself to change because you want someone to like you or wish to fit in - this will never last!

Stay true to your heart, to the person you truly are deep within your soul. If you bravely do that, sooner or later, you will be surrounded by people who will value you for who you really are and will never force you to change against your will. They will only love and support you while you grow according to your own personal pace.

And please don't force others into changing. 

If you cannot accept people the way they are and respect their speed of growing on a soul level, move on. The moment you start investing your energy into forcing someone to change, to fit your needs and desires before they are ready, you actually hurt them. A lot. You stop their growth and yours.

Focus on loving and respecting yourself.

Focus on your own growth, and while doing that, you will meet people who will inspire you to grow and change for the better just by their example.

And you can do the same for others.

Just share your journey, share your perspective, and inspire - but let others take that information and use it as they need to and only when they're ready.

Every journey is deeply individual. Respect that and just focus on yours. Only then can we all inspire each other to grow and change for the better.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new" - Socrates.

To wiser days and enlightened ways,
