Good evening ladies and gentlemen,
I have come to understand that there are different ways people see us. From my own personal life, I have come to know that people see me differently.
How they see me sometimes
- To some people, I am a stubborn person who doesn't take advice: sometimes, my sweet lovely sister, tell me: "you ehhhnnnnn, you no dey hear word". This is the vernacular way of saying that someone is stubborn. I, sometimes, believe:
Better you are STUBBORN, than you are STUPID. ~Anonymous
Do you know what? Most of the people who advice you to do one particular thing in any situation wouldn't do the same thing in that situation. It's quite funny!
As I have observed people, I have come to the realization that, sometimes, the advice some give to you, they won't take if given to them
One question I keep asking myself when people advise me is: "Is this advice for my own good, or for their own good?" (look beyond people's speech to see their hearts)
- To some people, I think I am smarter than I am and can therefore advice myself sometimes: well, I am a big believer in my smartness. Trust me, I know when to draw the line if it's becoming excessive. But, sincerely, I don't believe so much on myself. I only know that I can advise myself sometimes in some things. In fact, let me say this boldly:
If you can't take your advice, don't give it to anyone else ~My Thought
The truth is, if your advice is not valuable to you;it cannot be valuable to someone else.
Now, for any major decisions you need to make in yourself that you have received different advice on, ask yourself: "For whose benefit is this persons advice - for me or for themselves?"
Thanks for reading this article, I really appreciate it!
