Allow everyone around you to be the very best of their true selves and even with the highest of intentions, do not try to mould them into something they cannot ever manage to be. It is a futile and dangerous mission to waste your energy in this pursuit, as it devastates lives and keeps all involved trapped in a version of reality that is neither authentic nor healthy for either party.

Allow your heart to guide you to love and encourage your friends and family for their best qualities to shine, without ever making them feel less than they truly are, just because they are different to you in some way.

Pour your energy into nurturing your own life, as not only will you be a good example to your loved ones, you will also enjoy more harmony in your relationships with a greater variety of individuals.
