Can you change a selfish person?

My brother is the most selfish person Ive ever known. He always has to get what he wants and never thinks about how it will affect others. Can I change him..... somehow?

You can't, only he can.
Although you could try showing him videos of starving children in Africa

No period exclamation point. Just love him, pray for him and live a good clean healthy life. The ONLY person you can change is yourself. Good luck

If your parents allowed this or couldn't change it, there's really nothing you on your own can do.

No, you can talk to a person till you are blue in the face and they still don't listen the only thing you can do is pray for them!

No, he has to learn life's lessons on his own. Hopefully one day when you are both old these things will be forgotten.

You can't change how a person acts to your preferences. He isn't a robot. The only way he can change is if he is able to convince himself to do so.

Well, it would be hard, but yes. Make him hang around unselfish people and that will help. I have the same problem or i did and this help him.

I was like that not too long ago (and I'm still changing from it). It took me 17 years to realize I was selfish and I had to realize on my own because I wouldn't listen to anyone else. My best suggestion would be to let your brother know when you're disappointed in him via facial expression, without saying anything. It probably won't change him but it will help keep him from getting more selfish.
