Embrace who you are and live it, breath it, dream it, come what may. Sometimes we are compelled to change under the circumstances and become a mold of what our other half wants us to be – we surrender our nucleus, be it life, religion or traits. Indirectly we try to mutate our partners to live up to our expectations of who we want them to be.
A formula for a sinking ship. If you want to change, make sure it’s your decision without being coerced by anyone. It has to naturally come from the heart, just listen to your gut feeling. You will genuinely want to learn to acclimatize to your partner’s individuality to cultivate the relationship without any force.
“Come What May”, 3 powerful words that I was introduced over 5 years ago, still resonates within me despite ignoring its call many times for fear of the unknown – I’m now learning to heed it. As human nature, we aren’t forthcoming to change and rather dupe ourselves to be satisfied through accepting life’s routine because it feels safe, irrespective of our happiness.
No one can force a change on us, it’s our choice. After all, we’re not long on earth anyway so think carefully and twice if the change means that we need to sacrifice our soul. Happiness matters. If we aren’t happy how can we give happiness to others?
Change comes from within.
