Happy Thoughts: December 24, 2020 at 12:47PM

We all have our own values, and trying to force them onto others is never a good idea. The more we try to impose our values on others, the more disjointed and broken our bonds become. Just because we think something is right, doesn’t mean others need to believe the same so we should respect that.

Not only does imposing our values make others feel uncared for and unheard, but it’s also not an effective strategy to change someone’s mind or behavior. If you think about it, it probably just makes them want to stick to their beliefs even more.

The last thing you want to do is make someone feel like you’re trying to strip them of their autonomy. If you feel the need to sway someone’s opinion, you have to first show that you really understand them and their thoughts.
