I know you can't change a person - even if it's for the better. Not unless he/she wants to change. Sometimes a person thinks that he/she will be the one thing in life that makes that other person take a step back and day "this life is not working for me; I need to make a change". But I realized quickly that it's just not the case. You can't change someone unless they realize that the changes need to be made. At some point, we just pray to God that they see the reality of it.
