There will alway be people that try to control you or change you but in the end the only person that can take the steps to change is you and it is when you change for the right reasons and because you believe in those changes made that you will live true to your heart and can walk your journey in peace and with your head held high. Michele DeVille
How many times have you tried to make a change in your life that was for the wrong reasons or because you were trying to please someone else? Have you failed to maintain an important change in your life because you were not ready to make the change or you were not committed to making it last? Most people have felt pressured to change at some point because they wanted to fit in or because they wanted to make others happy. This is not necessarily a bad reason to make a change but unfortunately changes are often short lived or temporary when we attempt to change more for others versus for ourselves.
Change is never easy but it is incredibly difficult when we are not making the changes for ourselves and have not made the conscious decision to do it. People will always have an opinion or will try to change others and sadly, many people fall prey to attempting to change because of what others think. In the end, change typically does not last unless we make changes for the right reasons and more importantly, we make a change because we ourselves have made the decision that we need to change.
