100 Days of Writing – Day Seventy-Four

“Other people are who they are. You can’t change them. The challenge is to accept them and not try to make them otherwise to suit you.”

This is one fact of life than can be one of the most difficult to accept. We can tend to form a perspective of who someone else is and most often, it’s a projection of who we’d like them to be. Truth be told, this may or may not be who they actually are. And it’s not up to us to tell someone else who or what they should be. We’ve got our plates full deciding that for ourselves.

I’m in the world to do what my Higher Power has assigned me to do. That doesn’t include telling others who they should be. I’m sadly mistaken if I think I know what’s best for anyone else. It’s difficult enough to decide what’s best for ourselves.

And so just for today, I’ll continue to work on myself. I’ll take the lessons that I’ve learned in life and use them to become the best version of myself I can be.
