Changing Minds

No matter how hard you try, you really cannot change anyone’s mind.

You can acknowledge where they are right now.

You can empathize with that.

You can show them an alternate possibility.

You can help them deal with the fear of change.

But ultimately, they have to change their own mind.

It doesn’t matter how ‘obvious’ it seems to you.
