CHANGE PEOPLE? ABSOLUTELY NOT! MY BAD!

Parents, older people, preachers, teachers, friends, lovers, sisters, brothers, and the list goes on!

WHY DO THEY TRY TO CHANGE THE PEOPLE THEY LOVE AND/OR INTERACT WITH??!!

IS IT BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY “KNOW” BETTER? AND KNOW BETTER BECAUSE THEY’VE “BEEN DOWN THAT ROAD BEFORE AND KNOW THE CONCEQUENCES” OR IS IT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO SPARE THE PERSON THEY LOVE FROM “MISTAKES” AND HURT AND TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS? IS IT HUMAN NATURE TO WANT TO “SAVE PEOPLE”? JUST WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES PEOPLE GO TO THE TROUBLE AND DANGERS OF TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO CHANGE WHAT THEY ARE DOING OR ARE THINKING OF DOING AND DO SOMEHTING THAT “WE” THINK IS BETTER?

I SUGGEST IT IS A MIXTURE OF THESE THINGS!

BUT SHOULD WE?

AFTER MUCH THOUGHT AND TRIAL AND ERRORS, IN MY OLD AGE I HAVE DECIDED THAT I’M THROUGH WITH ADVISING, SUGGESTING, TEACHING, “PREACHING”, TRYING TO SAVE PEOPLE FROM PAIN AND SUFFERING! MY ADVICE TO THEM, GO FOR IT! IT IS YOUR RIGHT TO DO JUST EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. SO JUMP RIGHT ON IN THERE AND DO IT!

BUT, JUST AS IT IS YOUR RIGHT TO DO JUST WHAT YOU PLEASE, CHOOSE, DECIDE AND PROCEED TO DO, IT IS MY RIGHT TO DECIDE JUST HOW FAR I WANT TO RIDE IN THE BOAT WITH YOU.

THE GAME OF LIFE IS PLAYED OUT THIS WAY: YOU HAVE MANY CHOICES TO MAKE ALONG THE ROAD. YOU CAN MAKE ANY CHOICE YOU WANT TO AND THE ONLY “CATCH” IS YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUECES THAT GO ALONG WITH THE CHOICE.

I HAVE THE CHOICE OF DECIDING WHAT PART I DO OR DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN WHATEVER YOUR CHOICE AND ROAD YOU ARE TAKING.

THIS IS A LIBERATING EXPERIENCE FOR ME! I AM NO LONGER REPSONSIBLE FOR YOU. YOU ARE!

I AM ONLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ME!

THAT’S A GOOD THING!

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, I HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE SECRET TO PEACE! MAY YOU ALL BE SO LUCKY!
