We all want to be a hero to someone. Maybe even to everyone. But the fact is: you can’t save everyone. Believe me, I’ve tried. Unfortunately, there are just some people that can’t be saved. They are who they are. They’ll learn from their own mistakes and their own actions. No matter what you say, they won’t take your words into consideration. They might even blame you for the problems in their life. We have all tried at some point to be that person who changes someone. It’s nearly impossible to change someone. Someone will only change if they choose to do so. That power lies within them. This shouldn’t make us upset.
In a weird twisted way, it’s rather refreshing to see sometimes. It just goes to show that there are still some headstrong people out there. With the media shoving ideas of the perfect body, the perfect life, and the perfect whatever there are still some people who don’t listen to what others say. Is it frustrating sometimes? Absolutely. I can’t be angry at these people. They’re headstrong (or shall I say stubborn?) and nothing can change that.
Just remember, when the blame is “placed on you”, it doesn’t mean it was really your fault that things happened the way they did. I’ve been blamed for so many things in other people’s lives. Am I sorry? Not exactly. For the things I’ve directly done, yes, of course, I am apologetic. For the things that I had no control over that affected them that somehow related to me and thus prompted them to blame me for an event that happened in their life, no. I’m not sorry for those things. I had no control over them. Ultimately, we are all in control of our own lives. Certainly, there are events that occur in our lives that we cannot control, but we can control how we react to them.
