In every relationship, there comes a moment when you stop holding your stomach in. You realize you don’t need makeup unless you’re going out. A tee-shirt and sweat pants are fine. You can let go and just be YOU.
Remember how that felt? What a relief!
The day you give up trying to remodel family and friends is like that. One day, you have this huge revelation. Other people aren’t projects! You can’t fix them. Moreover, they don’t want to be fixed. They don’t think they are broken.
Talk about relief. Phew.
The world keeps spinning. Turns out, we never had any control over anyone but ourselves — and not much control over ourselves, either.
Welcome to live and let live.
