It’s up to you to change yourself
On this episode of God, Money & Purpose, Vivian and Raul discuss the topic of change. A person needs to be in pain in order to change. More specifically, a person needs to face his pain in order to change their habits. Once a person starts on that journey of self-improvement, the question becomes: what can the other person do? The person who has taken steps to change often has a fantasy that his partner will follow the example and magically level up as well. The reality is a little more complicated.
You have to change yourself enough and be happy with yourself enough to inspire your partner to change, but not pressure them. It may take a long time, years, even, in order for your partner to face her own pain. But the way to make lasting change is to never focus on the outcome but enjoy the journey together.
