Stephen Kirk -???
We’ve all come up against individuals who refuse to take advice.
Yup – advice.
I really don’t like that word – well, not the word exactly – but the action associated with the word.
I am very conscious of not giving advice. This is difficult for me because of my background but I have found that in life, people don’t usually like to receive it and they don’t appreciate it when it’s given (there are plenty of people out there willing to give advice).
There were cases in my past where I have offered my opinion for the well being of the individuals involved...and to not have the opinion respected or even considered...well, that was quite frustrating.
I have also been on the receiving end of advice and I out of my desire to keep the flow of life smooth, I have mostly heeded all advice given. (I also attempt to place myself into situations where I don’t need someone to give me advice...that helps the entire situation).
So – my advice...don’t give it, just receive it.
