The person may change but soon enough, they will embrace their true identity. It is as though they are playing hide-and-seek with you. As a result, your relationship will be filled with pretense.
It is a sad fact that change does not happen in a blink of an eye. No matter how you try to hope for change to take place, it will be ever-elusive if the person is not willing to make that change. Forcing them to change will only do more harm than good. They can think for themselves as they have a mind of their own.
Everyone dreams of maintaining a perfect relationship with a perfect partner, but human as you are, making mistakes is inevitable. Hence, there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. It has its own ups and downs. You will appreciate its true beauty when you embrace each other’s flaws and imperfections.
When there is love, change becomes voluntary. No force will be applied as change takes place instantly. It all begins with accepting the fact that your partner is not perfect. With acceptance, love becomes an instrument to making your partner a better person and the transformation just happens without even trying.
