Many folks who offer you advice are more interested in imposing their point of view on you than your happiness. These folks want the ego-satisfaction of getting their way with you more than offering advice that may actually do you good. They are more concerned with being right with their opinions and advice. It gives them a cheap thrill.
There is no more dangerous a person than those who have all the answers for you. This person simply wants to dominate you so he can falsely feel good about himself. His cheap thrill can cost you dearly.
If you are attracting these kinds of folks into your life, it is time to wake up. You want to look at the version of yourself that you have created yourself to be. The odds are that you are walking around with a “poor me, I’m helpless” attitude radiating outwardly from you. An attitude of helplessness is not actual helplessness. All attitudes, including a helplessness attitude, can be changed in an instant.
It is time to take a deeper look at your inward self-talk when you notice that you have surrounded yourself with people who insist they know what is best for you. They cannot impose their will on you unless you allow them to. Trust in yourself; turn deep within and ask that unlimited side of you what to do when things seem confusing. Ask, and ask again, believing in yourself; make it a habit to keep asking – the answers will come.
