“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.” ~Erica Jong
A lot of people gave me lots of advice in my life, especially when I was younger. Some suggestions were welcomed, others not so much. Over the years I learned to sort them into two piles “good”, meaning it’s worth thinking about it and “bad”, meaning not worth the trouble.
But somehow, I always end up with a second opinion and a third one, when I still don’t get the answer I was actually looking for. Because, the above quote is true -at least for me and my life.
Is there be a powerful suggestion anyone could have give me years ago, that I would have taken? A simple word of wisdom for a complex life?
No, I don’t think so. Even the bad experiences in my life have a meaning and continue to form me, to the person I am suppose to be.
A powerful suggestion, if there is such a thing, could have altered my life and I like my life -our life- exactly the way it is. “The good, the bad and the ugly”.
Still no regrets here!
