Youth Counselling

I really want to change

I am a third year B.E. student. I have many bad habits including robbing money, lying, cheating people, etc. I really want to change. My parents are fed up of me; they have taken me to counselling centres but still there’s no change in me. What can I do? Please guide me, I really want to change!

Dear Syed, you admit to having “many bad habits” and that you “really want to change”. If this is true, you have already made a start in the process of changing your life. What you need now is a clear understanding of the possible consequences of your actions: committing crimes that can take you to jail and bring shame to you and your family. Your parents took you to counselling centres without positive results. If you believe in God you should also turn to Him for help and guidance. Talk to some religious leader in your community and spend some time in prayer and meditation. Seek the friendship of good and honest people in order to learn how to be a responsible member of society.
