Don’t Take Advice

Some people love to give advice. I seem to know a lot of these people.

My advice? The more willing someone is to toss out unsolicited advice, the less likely they have any idea what they’re talking about.

I’ve listened to well intentioned advice all my life. I’m not happy with where it’s led me.

I’m trying something new. I’m following my gut, within reason.

I’m also going to be keeping my plans to myself, something I’ve never really done before. I’ve always needed at least one person to approve of my decisions.

It’s a daily battle to keep people from discouraging me. People who, as dear as they may be to me, don’t know how to reach my goals. I don’t know either, but I’d rather do what feels right and have it not work out, than do what I’m “supposed” to, according to someone else, and have it not work out.

I’ve been feeling stuck for YEARS, progressing only within the bounds of my comfort zone and quietly blaming other people for my stagnation.

I’m done. I’m taking full responsibility for my own life.

Feeling the same way? Join me. We can screw up (and/or kill it) together, virtually.
