Sometimes we are drowned in our perceptions, an ideology of how people should think and act the same way we do. We are suffocated with several thoughts of why people act otherwise.
No matter how we try to make people who we are, or make them think as we do, they will always be themselves. The best we can do, if truly we care, is to let others make their decisions. We can give our candid advice without fear or doubt whether people follow it or not.
We shouldn't live based on someone else's decisions for our life, and we should not expect other people to live based on our own decisions for their own lives.
