What have you observed in your co-workers, spouse, kids, neighbors, friends and family that you may find non-beneficial, annoying, frustrating or unproductive, but really it just is WHAT THEY DO??

Your personality is largely set through a variety of influences. We are who we are. One golden rule in marriage is “don’t try and change your spouse.” This applies not just in marriage. People are who they are. Seek to appreciate them for who they are, recognizing most weaknesses have flip strengths; try and see those. If THEY want to change, that is a different story.
