Don’t Try to Fix Me

I won’t try to fix you so don’t try to fix me. I’ll be me, you’ll be you that’s the best for you & me.

In an era of information, ignorance is a choice. Emotional IQ is important to avoid ignorance. It comes at the cost of dignity, rejection, misunderstanding, and of course the feeling of loneliness. You might mean well to loved ones, siblings, or friends; but in the end, they can’t be fixed. Every person has his or her own perception, pace, perspective, and most importantly, priorities. Priorities aren’t just goals, they can be hurt’s measuring units. What does hurt you might not hurt others. Then again, what means the world to you might not exist to others. People are strange but minds are stranger than fiction.

They say love of all sorts
changes love’s consorts.
But they never say
it’s a conditional stay.

Hope’s boat hardly floats
Help is a bay of hay
anchoring in delay
lit with dismay.

You can pour your heart
but words only spill trust.
You can express thought
but emotions spell bust.
And that’s how souls rust
as love decays in time’s dust.

Life is harsh for a mush
who cares too much.
The harder you push
the sooner your ambush.

It hurts when regret
is the best you can get.
It stings, it stinks
when fix sticks
hurt like a needle that pricks.

You try to understand
hoping to be understood.
But try is a hood
covering unrequited love
with insult as truth.

Cares are fallen hairs
from a heart that bears
loneliness’ flares
in love’s fairs.

People are lonely stairs
with attitudes for chairs.
Pull one out & it’ll break
under you then break
you to remind you:

You can’t fix people
with advice, because
change is strange
when you’re out of range.

I won’t try to fix you
so don’t try to fix me.
I’ll be me, you’ll be you
that’s the best for you & me.

The poem is true, we can’t fix everyone even if it’s our own family and friends, same goes to me. Only I can’t fix myself, other people may contribute to it but the final decision will always depend on me.

We all want to conform with one another not knowing that we are different with one another, we have different perceptions and opinions regarding our personal matters. Most of the time people wants to comfort and be comforted but the truth is, only ourselves can understand us and fix us from the damage that has been caused by circumstances and maybe other people.

It is true that no one in this world can fix ourselves because we are the only one who can fix ourselves. Ourselves is the one who can understand us and the one who we can trust in a situation that other people don’t understand and trust us. Ourselves is our only ally who can fix us in a world that no one will help us.

To comfort is to support, not to change him/her on he/she wants to do in life.

Everyone has their own perception in life, which is why we don’t help others so that we can change them completely, but we help them so that they can become a better person. The same things goes within ourselves, because others can’t change who we are like how we can’t change them.

Yes, we can’t change anyone but we can do it on ourselves. All of us have different perspectives in life all we need to do is to accept and not to judge.

What means the world to you might not exist to others, means don’t expect something in return when you gave something to someone . Love is not what you always think it can betray you and the other person involved. You can’t change someone else and no one can change you, a meaningful sentence that means for me that you’re the controller of your own life. You can change for the best or bad, it depends to you.

We all people don’t have to change ourselves for others because it will not help us. We just have to stay on who we are and stand on who really are and what we really wants. We don’t have to fix others because we have differences that instead of fixing them we may just broke them and put things not in order.

It’s okay for us to tell people some wrongdoings of them, for them to correct it, themselves. However, let us not force them to change. We did our part. It’s now up to them how they will handle that. Let people do what they want to do. Let them be themselves. Let us enjoy our life the way we want it.

We have a personal opinion and perception to our life. So you have a mind and knowledge if you are going influence by others. Action without words are misleading.

You can’t fix others if you can’t fix yourself. So if you want to fix other people start fixing yourself first.

The way we view things is different for every people. We shouldn’t change ourselves for other people but we should do it for ourselves. We also can’t force other people to change so that they can live up to our expectations rather we should just help and support them when they decided to change.

“Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you’re NOT broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.”

The beauty of focusing on your strengths is that it not only benefits you, it benefits those around.

I believe that people vary from one another and we can’t change someone in our own favor. This change depends on your own decision as an individual whether you change for the better or worst.

The thing is that, people tend to ask for other people’s advice just to have someone they can vent out with; not because they want to get fixed but rather have someone by their side in times of need.

Acceptance is the key. We should learn that we can advice others, but we can’t fix them. We all have differences.

(ACT184) You cannot fix other people because it’s their own job to fix themselves.

Based on my interpretation, we have different personalities, attitude, perception and mind-setting. Maybe my beautiful to me is ugly to others. There will be an instances that we accidentally came up with a decision that doesn’t satisfy others. So, we are all allowed to disagree one’s decision but make sure do it with respect.

Just don’t depend on other just be yourself and don’t let others change you. I don’t believe that others can’t change us because change is a choice. If we want to changes ourselves base on what other want it’s possible and it’s our choice.

Prioritizing yourself is a must for you to build as an individual. Knowing that you’re trust and love for yourself is already enough is the best time to fix others because we all need to remember that broken holes needs to be fixed first before fixing another hole.
