Taking advice from ourselves is often a difficult thing to do, primarily because we’re not always aware of what we want and because we often lack an understanding of our needs.
For us to make decisions, we need our own understanding on what we deal with, so that we can make decisions comfortably. We have to live with and be happy with our decisions, which is why many of us take advice from other people instead.
Unfortunately, when we take advice from other people we give control to the people we’re taking advice from. We’ll take their advice, then wish we hadn’t when our circumstances don’t work out.
If we are to live our own lives the way we want to live our lives, we must learn to take and use our own advice. Advice must always start with us.
