Let people be who they are and if who they are doesn’t work for you, make another decision. But don’t spend one more second trying to make them into who you think they should be.
People live and die by their stories. But their stories don’t have to become yours. What you buy into is yours. If their story doesn’t match yours, don’t buy into it. Smile and walk away.
We are comfort-seeking creatures. We would like everything to be easy and pleasurable, but life doesn’t always work that way.
