A) Impossible

B) Inevitable

C) His Story, if there ever was one

D) All of The Above

Is trying to “change” yourself equal to employing a heavy hand in creating your life story? In other words, are you pushing a merry-go-round that’s already going around?

If you want a fairy tale, I believe you should have one. But if you’re trying to change yourself, maybe you forget that you are the hero of your story, no matter your circumstances. Cinderella had no money and she was so into dancing with the prince she lost track of her Fairy God Mother’s curfew time, rushed home and left her glass slipper behind. But what did those details (“flaws”?) do for her story? What about The Beast? It’s debatable whether being a beast is good or bad. But once more, there would be no story without one.

Story characters don’t need to do anything to better themselves, other than live their story and let life happen. Letting life happen can be good or bad, according to things I’ve said in the past, so you have to just figure it out for yourself. Here’s a hint: Trust that whichever way you go will be the right way for the story of your life.

In fact, if you want to try to “improve” your Cinderella- or beast-like self, I don’t think you can go wrong. Although, I should say, the only change a person can make is to stop believing there’s something wrong with him. I guess that also means there’s nothing right with him either. There’s nothing left to be then, other than to simply be.
