So how might the author go about helping someone with severe and debilitating mental illness, who won't acknowledge that they need help?
Especially when that person's actions constantly and deeply hurt you? Make you unable to take care of yourself? Does this "don't try to change me" apply there?
Wow! And thank you!
Why did you write this article? Are you trying to change me? :)
If you expect to change someone, they better be wearing a diaper
Thank you for this important food for thought. It IS easy to try to “help” others, but as you say it shows a lot of arrogance. And, speaking as someone that was the object of the “help” it creates wounds deeper than you can imagine, which have taken me years to heal from.
Brilliant. Inspired insight and a lesson that I need to always remember. Thank you!
Outstanding! Thank you so much. I needed to read this.
This is excellent. And such a hard concept for most of us to embrace. Thank you. I will do better.
