How Letting People Be Themselves Can Actually Help You
Let people make their own choices.
You may believe pushing people into doing what you want them to do is for their own good, but you are actually depriving them of their own experiences. No one is happy when they’re pushed into conforming. Wouldn’t you rather your boyfriend plan dates because he wants to, rather than because you’re hounding him? And wouldn’t you rather your alcoholic friend stop drinking on their own accord instead of hiding it from you to avoid your lectures? Letting people choose their experiences allows you to live your own life.
