I love this quote!! This is so true, but sometimes, because we are tired, discouraged, or sometimes, just because we avoid taking decisions, we don’t follow these wise words.
Who could tell you better than yourself the best direction for you to follow?
The people around you (family, friends) with all their love will only tell you what they think is the best for you, but you are the one that knows yourself intimately, that knows your past, present, dreams and expectations in life.
When you act by listening other people’s advices without first asking yourself: “is this my direction? Is this really what I want?” you might prepare yourself for disappointment and bitterness.
By saying this, I don’t mean that it’s not a good think to listen to others people advices, in the contrary; people that can’t listen to advices are the one that will most certainly fail in their initiatives, because listening to advices means taking a time for reflection which is always a good think.
But while listening to advices, never forget that it is about you and your life, so at the end, listen to the advice of your interior voice, it will never fool you.
