Don’t change their actions, change your reaction 

I’m always a big advocate of not changing yourself for other people. Of not losing yourself in another person. But what’s the other side of that? 

If you don’t change for them, why do we expect them to change for us? We get so caught up in “knowing what’s best” but who are we to say what’s best? 

The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. 

So do something different if you want to see something different. 

Be yourself and allow others to be themselves. You can’t change them so stop wasting your energy trying. Just accept them for who they are and try to stay peaceful throughout the situation. 


Happy Monday and may your week be as peaceful as I imagine it could be.
