Don't Expect Others to Change


There always be the moment when we wish we could change the behaviour of others to satisfy what we are expecting them to be. Why he keeps procrastinating? Why she always late? However, I found it kinda annoying to wait for the change which to be honest it might not even gonna happen. Sometimes, it makes me feel frustrated why such annoying behaviour can't be altered and why it is so hard for some people just to think logically of what to do or what not. Eventually, it only drives us crazy or even insane for some of us who have high hope in changing others' behaviour. Well, keep thinking positive is good, but personally I would rather change my attitude and don't expect others to change for me because it can be hard and chances are it may or may not going to happen


I am not a perfect human-being, so there are both positive and negative energies run in me all the time. However, I keep telling my mind to be calm and peaceful by reading lots of self-improvement books and they really effectively work on me. Recently, I have been in a situation of relationship diverse when everything seems to fall apart. I got angry, frustrated and couldn't cope with it because I expected the other one too much. 

I always think that relationship might not be the final goal of my life because I am more than happy to live my life happily and pursue my dream no matter what it takes. So, I always go with the flow with the situation. Having hope with someone you love is a risk since he/she may or may not meet the expectation of what we are hoping for. My solution is to play along and keep calm. I don't really expect people to change or even my case I don't even want to expect my the other half to change because it is 'useless'. We gotta understand that we were raised in different families, different environments and circumstances. Therefore, it is hard for us to eternally change for the sake of others. The more we are getting older, the more difficult we dealing with the word 'change' 

To live happily, just change the attitude towards others and adapt the perspective to be more positive. I can't change, you can't change and we can't change so why not telling ourselves to change our thoughts towards that person so that we would become a happier person. Besides, we have got nothing to worry right?

  11. Interesting post! People change in life, like you said we all have different background and experiences that shape who we are and who we will become. But changing for others never last long, as we won't be true to ourselves. Better to accept the things we can change (ourselves) and let go of trying to change things we can't (other people).

  21. I don't necessarily believe in changing for others, but I do believe in altering behavior for others, especially in a relationship. Sometimes you do things for other people, not for the purpose of changing who you are as a person, but because it's what the person you love needs. That's a huge lesson I had to learn in terms of change and relationships.

  28. Fantastic post! I love your consciousness and all frankly points in this post. People are so individual from physical to mindset and yes we rarely can change our individuality, so why we expect the others will change for us. I'm so in loved with your points of views. The other thing I'm so proud of you because you're Thai where is my hometown too. And you're so talented with what you're doing and what you're thinking. Love your blog and your style. xoxo
