Have you ever tried to change yourself for someone else?

A young friend of mine has fallen victim to this plight, it seems first love can really cause people to do what ever it takes to please their cherished one, even at their own expense.

Don’t get me wrong, you want to make your significant other happy, but when you start to change because they want you to it makes for a dangerous path.

Think about it.

You find someone with who you can connect, because you’re both different people and it is in those differences that you start to learn from each other and grow. Keeping this in mind why on earth would you want to change the other in to a carbon copy of yourself or mould them in to something/someone else?

It doesn’t make sense to me.

Sadly I’ve seen this cycle happen many times over, it will end in her getting bored and him getting hurt, it’s only a matter of time.
