Why does it seem like family members and friends are the hardest to help make changes in their diet and exercise?
It seems like they never want to hear where they’re wrong and I end up getting pissed because I actually care whether they listen or not.
Maybe they’re so self conscious that advice about their health hurts them? Maybe they dont want to take advice from a friend because they risk being put in a lower status category. It’s hard to understand because I usually listen when people intend to help me.
So, what’s the secret? How do I get them to pay attention to what I’m saying?
Setting a good example is the first step, but that’s already been/being done.
