When you try to change other people, it’s usually not about therm, it’s about you!
Chances are, you may have some sort of control issues, so if you ever catch yourself saying to someone else, “You need to….”, then those should be your trigger words in recognizing that you’re trying to control someone else’s behavior.
Of course, there are times when control is needed, especially in regard to children and boundaries, but when your speaking to a friend, a partner, or family member, please keep in mind how it feels when others tell you what to do.
The best way to address an issue is with tact. For example, instead of saying, “I just saw an amazing movie and you need to go see it” you might want to say something along the lines of, “I saw an amazing movie that I think you might enjoy.” By phrasing it differently, you are not demanding the person to do anything and are basically giving them a choice to do so, if they want to.
Honor their paths
Most importantly, honor the paths of others, even when you don’t agree with them!
There are many topics of discussion in which we WILL disagree with others, and sometimes, with close friends and partners.
For example, if you don’t share the same political view as someone else, then don’t try to change their mind and argue about something that ultimately, is interfering with your friendship. Most politicians lie about something or another, so don’t let THEIR lies come in between you.
Even in spirituality, we all have our differences whether it is being of service to a specific religion, not being religious at all, or being an atheist.
Many people have their own versions of how the proverbial “End Times” will come to fruition. Some say we simply die and go to heaven. Other people say there will be a solar flash that brings ascension. Others are focused on the false ascension matrix.
Each person is entitled to their own version of what the truth is. I always try to stand in the vibration of truth, love, and light, but inevitably, my truth is not everyone else’s truth.
Like Gandhi said, “Even if you’re the minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”
You may not agree with someone else’s path, but that’s THEIR truth. Honor it!
Sending you all infinite Love & Light,
