Everyday for the next year I will be posting a new Inspirational Rule to consider living by. I hope you enjoy.
Rule #17 10/31/15
Accept that People CAN and WILL change up until they take their very last breath.
Our personalities and beliefs are in constant motion of change even when we may think not much is different. The experiences that we are exposed to each create a shifting of our consciousness; some toward growth while other experiences sometimes lead us toward fear. Either way we are ever changing. In partnerships and relationships, we must come to understand that change is inevitable. We become so disappointed when someone we love does not remain the same person we once knew. We try to them to mold them into a better picture that suits our needs and not theirs. It is one thing to encourage but a whole other situation when we try to force change. It's your choice to tolerate or walk away from someone. You can choose to stop dealing with the person OR accept him/her as is and change your response to them. Trying to change the person won't make them change. Changing your response can.
The most valuable lesson in life that I have learned is that I do not have to like what people do, but I do choose to unconditionally accept them as they are; flawless or with flaws. My perception is what creates the change. Adjust your expectations. What seems wrong can be right to someone else and the same vice versa. ~Will "Story" Rivera
