Trying to change your partner sounds like trying to make a tiger change its stripes. It’s impossible don’t you think so?
Remember how things were at the beginning of your relationship, you couldn’t find any fault with your partner, because you were so blinded by love.
Now you are more piss off by their once enjoyable quirks, and you wish they changed, and you can do whatever you can to affect those changes.
Get that off your head, because it won’t work, rather you will cause another problem for yourself. Relationship experts say that “encouraging your partner works better than trying to forcefully change your partner.”
You only have to hope and pray that your partner changes, don’t try to do change him or her.
