You could feel that the guy you’re seeing is absolutely perfect for you, as long as he learns how to dress properly, gets some new friends and secures that all-important promotion at work, but everyone has heard “you can’t change a person” so many times that it has burnt into his brains as that weird song he probably doesn’t like listening to.
What really happens when you are trying to change someone? You could be heading towards an immature relationship.
Well, here are the five things that could happen when trying to fix your partner;
1. YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO BE CHANGED BY ANOTHER:
Imagine a scenario where someone came in, took everything about you and tried to dramatically remove all those parts! Why would you even try to be with someone if there was so much about them you wished were different? You should be asking yourself the same question
2. YOU TURN THE BAD ONE:
If you’re trying to fix someone, then the person isn’t right for you. That’s exactly why you want to change that person. Telling him he isn’t good enough just feels shitty and prolongs an inevitable breakup.
3. HE WAS PROBABLY HAPPY BEFORE YOU TRIED CHANGING HIM:
Even if he is stuck in a job he complains about all the time, he is still doing that because part of him loves it. Do you just want him happy? Well, he is actually happy in his own way. Love it or leave it, girlfriend.
4. IT TAKES FOREVER IF IT LATER WORKS ON THE SAME LEVEL:
Do you really want the next few years of your life to be spent as someone else’s life coach? Honestly? No, you don’t.
5. EVEN IF HE WEARS DIFFERENT CLOTHES, HE IS STILL THE SAME PERSON UNDERNEATH:
Whether you were literally trying to get your partner to dress better or trying to change his attitude, this is true. He may have gone from wearing old track pants to another outfit, but this will one day be used to mop up pizza grease because that is just the man he is.
You should actually know when to call it a quit while trying to change your partner!
