I have had several clients come to me asking how they can change someone else in their lives - indeed, I've wondered that myself from time to time.
The short answer - you can't.
And what's even more uncomfortable to sit with is that no matter how hard you try to make a relationship work - whether at work, with friends, family or in a romantic relationship - no matter how much you change, how much you attempt to create better communication, or peace, or come to some sort of healthy middle ground, people can only meet you as far as they've been willing to go themselves. And if you're doing all the work chances are that they've not gone very far in their own introspective journey and there's only one thing you can do - move on.
