This is a reblogg that I found an interesting post on being yourself. This quote caught my attention.
“Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love you.”~Yusra Patni
The thing about most people who are always trying to change people is that those who try and change others are often attempting to change them into a worst version of themselves. When their original ol’ self will do just fine.
There’s a big ol’ difference between changing someone and helping them refine and hone their best traits, skill or whatever. Pushing them to be the best they can be. It’s still them but you just see where they can excel and you encourage them to do so because you believe in them. This is what some think they’re doing.
