If the people in your life are family, or incredibly important to you, then you have to learn to love them unconditionally. This ties back into seeing them for who they really are, not who you want them to be. When you step out of your own head and see that human beings tend to do their absolute best to build a life in this world, then you can experience more compassion for the parts that you don’t necessarily like.
Stop putting pressure on them to be something they’re not, just let them be. Love them. Set boundaries with them. Create space if needed… but do NOT try to change them. Remember, if you’re choosing to keep these people in your life, it’s on you to maintain boundaries and to accept them fully and completely.
