On the flip side, you can’t continue to change yourself to please others. Learning self-love and respect is a sign of maturity. Being able to walk away from toxic people and situations is an important skill. So no, I don’t fully agree with the posted statement. Take me as I am, or not at all. I am beautifully and wonderfully made. The people who are encouraging and supportive love me for me and help me be the best I can be. It’s not immature to expect respect and love.

Would love to show this to my Mom who at 82 is still saying “I’m sorry, it’s just who I am, I can’t change”. “Oh yeah you can, Mom”.

Hmmmmm…how very small and condescending of this person to tell you you MUST change to be a better person.

They should take their own advice and be a better person. I am who I am because of the path I walked in my shoes…which you have no idea what it was like.

I don’t know how old you are, but after reaching my forties i tend to disagree more and more with this and am happier accepting myself for who i am

Lot of hyper defensive comments on here defending the “take me or leave me” attitude.
The wisdom of this went right over their heads.

If you are changing yourself to make others happy, then you are not being true to who you are and are putting on a mask to make people like you. Yes everyone grows and changes, but when you are doing it for someone else, you’ll never truly be happy.

I agree with this post…mostly. Some people just don’t know/see their own toxic behaviors. But if your friends and family are telling you the same things bother them, independent of one another, then it’s time to accept their concerns, and address them. “That’s the way this person is,” just enables the person to continue the hurtful behaviors.

If you also get to judge someone based on your own effing understanding alone, you yourself is immature. Some people may have changed (maybe for some not for the better) coz of life changing reasons. Understanding things is where we should all start, not jumping on the conclusion that one is inherently toxic. Instead of blaming or pointing out their immaturity, we should rather help them do the change we want them to have. Besides, if it’s easy for you to label someone toxic without even knowing what is happening to them and why they are acting out, don’t you… Read more »

I changed who I was my entire life to please people. I am who I am. I am not perfect. I am still growing. But I’ll be damned if I change myself or hide who I am for someone else. It took a lot of self growth to find myself. The people I have in my life now love me for me. Theres no hiding.

Wow! Yes. All of this. Wish I could tag a certain someone here big time. When you are so selfish as to not think your actions can be improved. Life is a balancing act of self love and knowing it’s not all about you.

So not true ……everyone has flaws and if everyone could truly change their flaws then we would all be perfect ……

I think the problem is that what you view as a flaw that I must ‘fix’ I view as an integral part of me that is a blessing from God and defines me to the core as a person. So… No. The above is a really good attempt on the part of one person to high jack the careful choosing of desirable traits of another, which speaks of control and domination… and the last bit? How incredibly mature to point their finger and make that statement, so I retort; I know you are, but what am I? ffs lol

Love this ❤️❤️ so true and actually it’s usually toxic people that say this. We all have good and bad sides and as we age we learn to become better versions of ourselves, hopefully 🤷🏻‍♀️😂❤️

Being toxic and being human( imperfect) are two different things. Sure, there’s always room to improve and better ourselves but there’s also self love and acceptance, which is important. You can’t change who you are based on someone else’s perspective. So yes, there is still a point of ” take me or leave me”.

This is an about face to the “I will not apologize for who I am” movement. I think there’s tremendous value and opportunity for growth with introspective corrections.

As much as i agree that there are always things to do better. However at the same time i have my flaws i am not perfect and if someone wants to be in my life they need to be able to have some patience and understand this.

Mike Blodgett this. I love this was our beginning together, learning and accepting change to be a better person, to be better for each other. That’s why we have had so much growth in our relationship. 💕

So many respond without having taken in the clear point it states as ownership for toxic traits.. It does not question self love nor acceptance of flaws.. i absolutely agree people shouldn’t bend their personal truth of who they are at core on the surface expectations of others.. the difference being some want to see you standing within what’s best for you by your own true self despite and away from potential toxicities..while some expect and want the best of you from their own places of toxicity without regard to your own being.. what I feel this post intended to… Read more »

This encourages codependent behaviors and attitudes.
There’s nothing immature about accepting yourself and your flaws.
There’s always room to grow…if you’re a bully, learn empathy and compassion; if you’re impatient and angry, work on that. But improvement and changing who you are are totally different things and everyone works at their own pace.

Well… my father is 63 now and he still “lives” with this attitude.
Such a shame. 😞
