Be The Change You Wish To See In the World — Gandhi
This quote is one of my favorites.
Because we all are thinking about changing the world. Changing the things we don’t like.
But most of the times we don’t even see that we ourselves are not doing anything against it.
We always say and think that we would like to change our nutrition or our habits.
And we always say and think what we don’t like about other people: their nutrition by going to McDonalds or smoking.
But we are doing the same things the others are doing. We eat at McDonalds or chocolate. We do less sport because we’re not motivated.
So how can we expect others to change when we ourselves are not willing to change?
Your life and others will change if you yourself change.
I always caught myself thinking about that my ex-boyfriend or my future boyfriend shouldn’t watch so much TV and series, and do more adventures or travelling. But I’m nothing better like that. I’m also watching a lot of TV series instead of going out.
So before I get into a relationship again, I should change myself in the person I would like to be with in a relationship.
I will always find boyfriends who are watching TV series all day because I’m doing the same.
So I need to be the change I would like to see in the world and in other people.
If I don’t, I will always attract those people.
So you and I need to be the change we wish to see in the world.
That’s the only way we can change the world.
