Life At Its Best - Poem by Kristen Palmitier

You only can get what you put into it right?
No one can force any one into doing some thing they do not want to do. You want to know why? Well it's called FREE WILL OF MAN KIND...
People have to want to make the change that is for them on their own.
So why do people want to try to change others? Is it because we are selves have to learn to deal with change?
And why try to fix some ones esles life when your own may need help?
I respect the idea of I will never be able to change any one with out them wanting it as badly as I do. But I know what you can do to make the best of the worst situation. That is to learn, listen, and most of all respect ones decisions to act the way they do. Even though most of the time people will think it of how can I get some one to stop acting this way. You have to remind your self that they are the ones who want the change to make the change at all

    Indeed, change can only come from within oneself. The beauty of free will, and the double-edged sword as well. Because we are free, we have not only the freedom to change but we receive all of the consequences of change, good and bad. You are right in saying, too, that some are 'too busy' trying to change others without first doing their own 'homework' of changing themselves. It may be that in changing myself that I invite others to change themselves as well. Great poem! Deep thoughts! Keep on writing! (Report) Reply
