You can't

You can't make someone see what they don't want to see.... think a certain way.... do what you want... be who you want. 

You can't force someone to see things from your perspective... be empathetic.... be sympathetic... show mercy.... take pity... be kind.

You can't make a situation turn out the way you want because you think it should.... because you think you're right....because you don't know what you'll do if it doesn't.

You can't control anyone but yourself. So know you will survive no matter the outcome. Know good things are coming even when bad things are happening. Know you can't change others but you can change your outlook. Know that you will be ok.

Lesson learned.
