I’m hoping the new year has treated you well so far. I had the most weird dream of all dreams! It was specifically about advice giving and there were lines of old friends of mine who wanted advice from me. One of the friends in that line were myself. I was pretty shocked but then I realized it makes sense.
Every time I needed or still need advice I’d go to my friends or search it up on google to see what was said by others if it was even asked. Sometimes there were good answers but most of the time I’d end up doing what I wanted to do in the first place. and because of that reason, some of my “friends” cut me loose because I simply didn’t abide their advice every time they gave it. But it didn’t matter if I had lost them for that reason, because I had myself. I realized if they left for that reason well then that’s on them, the realist friend I have is myself.
Most people got irritated because of the fact that they gave me advice after advice and I’d never listen to it. We mostly ask for advice from other people so we can get a different perspective. So we could see if maybe those words that they have can make us realize something different from our own thoughts.
So my advice to you is, do not listen to your friends. I mean sure you can ask for advice but you aren’t, obligated to go by what they say. at the end of the day it is your life. You live with the choices you make, with the consequences that some may take. So if you lose people for taking your own path, maybe it is just for the best.
