Peter Bevelin: Changing people

“One thing that has been reinforced is how hard it is to change people’s opinions or beliefs. On the other hand, this is understandable. As the author Jacob Braude said: ‘Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have of trying to change others.’ The lesson? It is better to avoid situations where we need to change people. Also, in the end, each of us has to respect that others may disagree with us.”
