The more you try to change other people the more you signal that trying to change others is okay. 

So those people you’re trying to change? They’ll try to change you too. 

Rather than being interested in each other’s lives, you’ll suggest and advise and coerce them into being more like you. 

They’ll convince you to be more like them. 

Neither wins out long term.

What’s the alternative?  

Being happy with your lot. Making your own choices. 

Leaving others to their worlds and wishing them the best. Being interested, asking questions, but not pushing them to make decisions either way. 

You’re not them, and they are not you. You don’t need parenting.

You don’t need advice. You have everything you need within yourself. 

Self-sufficiency, independence, the confidence to show up exactly as you are. 

Go make your magic.
