Giving advice or receiving it—
I’m not sure which one is harder to do.
When you care enough to share something that is practical, that doesn’t give you an advantage, that isn’t meant to make you feel better, but rather, help someone be better, you’re putting yourself and your relationship at risk.
Sometimes, people get offended. Sometimes, it makes all the difference in the world.
Listening to things you don’t want to hear, but need to hear, is invaluable.
Sometimes, you might be tempted to get offended—don’t. Sometimes, it just might be the catalyst you need to get on the right track.
