You can love them, but you can’t change them.
Have you ever found yourself in a relationship that sounds like this?
You’ve prayed about this challenging situation. You’ve talked about this. You’ve tried to navigate it or even tried to stop it. But in the end, nothing has worked, even when you think you’ve set parameters in place. They’re still acting the same way, the relational tensions are higher than ever, and your mind is screaming “I can’t keep doing this… something has to change.”
It’s a terribly hard truth to accept, but what if learning we can’t change other people is actually one of the most freeing truths we could embrace? While we can’t control their behavior, we can draw effective boundaries that will actually lead to healthy progress for the relationship. If you need help navigating this, I created a free resource just for you.
