Advice I Seemed To Ignore

Standard

Today’s daily prompt: What’s the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year (or five, or ten…) ago? https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/powerful-suggestion/

I think I may have been given this advice but I’m not sure it was drilled in hard enough. The first piece of advice is not to take life too seriously. Be silly, laugh and find enjoyment in everything you can.

The second is to tell people who constantly have an opinion of who you are and how you live to mind their own business. People can make me feel pretty crappy with constant replay and criticism of my every action. How I raise my kids, what I teach them is important or not, and whether I choose to work or not is none of anyone’s business. In fact, their opinions are not warranted or wanted. I wish someone told me to put people in their place from the very beginning. Put people in their place and nip the disrespect and criticism in the bud as soon as it starts to bud. 

How about you? What advice do you wish you were given years ago?

    I wish I was given those words of advice as well. Also, I wish I would have been told that college isn’t what it’s cut out to be. It’s all a business and once you become a part of it, it doesn’t make sense for you to ever stop because if you do, you’re screwed!
