Changing others, changing self!


Today, I read this with mixed feelings:

“Be wary of people who constantly keep an eye on what

you’re doing but don’t compliment or support you.”

Dhar Mann –


Have you ever felt this way at work, at home, or in your social circle?

Do you feel unappreciated by your boss, your spouse, or your friends?


But Nicky Gumble says,

“You can’t change how people treat you or what they

say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it.”

I am sure there are many authors who say about the same things above, too.

It is true, but we cannot change others.

So, many thanks to the many who support me!

  1. I have relatives who will turn on the criticizing mode whenever they interact with me. They are very toxic, but I understand that many women grow up in such kind of negative environment and have to learn to cope with it.
