Showing and giving love is a beautiful thing. Being a selfless human being and truly caring for others is not just the “right” thing to do but it’s what we all should be doing. There’s one problem however, and that’s that a lot of us feel we can change people. We are only responsible for ourselves and our own words, thoughts and actions. We cannot ‘make’ other people be a certain way, think a certain way, act a certain way, etc.
The biggest most crucial part of a Life Coach’s job is to not try to change people – it’s to guide them in the right direction towards their highest self. That means their best self. Whatever it is upon their heart to pursue is the direction they need to go. A Life Coach is there to provide the tools and guidance, motivation and wisdom to help you get there. I cannot change you as a person though, nor do I want to. I cannot make you think the same way I do or believe the same things I believe. I used myself as an example because it’s the best one to provide – but even if you aren’t a Life Coach or even in a field of this nature and you’re just a righteous, caring human being – it’s a tough lesson to choke down. We want so bad sometimes to help people, but we fool ourselves thinking we can change them. There’s a big different between helping someone be a better ‘them‘ and changing them all-together. We should never change people. We should cherish them for all their beauty and imperfections. Today’s Daily Affirmation:
