But even when major change is in order, it doesn't happen in one fell swoop. It's a bit at a time and a slow steady adjustment to the new perspective, the new behavior, and the new way of life. I can't impose my absolutes on others, and I can't successfully impose them on myself. Everything is process and evolution. Even cutting ties that bind requires a period of loss, adjustment, and recovery.
I stop trying to make people and situations all one thing or another. I accept change in behavior and habits as a slow process.
