If you believe what they're doing isn't good for them, is it wrong to try to change them? Should you just let people live how they want, or are you obliged, out of love, to insist they change? Give me some advice here guys, I'm having an ethical dilemma. On the one hand, witnessing them making a mockery of their life and throwing away their chances at happiness is hard to bear, on the other hand, who am I to tell them what to do, you know? But I know some people need someone to shake them out of their rut, because they can't manage it themselves. My intentions are good and I do truly only want the best for them, but if their vocal opposition is anything to go by, they don't want my help. Or at least are not emotionally ready for it. It makes me feel like an ass for pushing them, but they can't continue this forever, it's hurting them and it's hurting me to watch! Is it wrong to want a person to change?
