If your eyes are closed to the truth, then at least, open your ears. Listen, secrets are being shared, advice is being offered, the wise are speaking of their experiences but the young are unable to focus for one moment.
Listen, without thinking about what you want to say next. Just listen.
Good advice can go a long way on one condition. It can only prove its worth when it’s taken.
Good advice is hard to take, because it means we have to do something someone else is telling us to do. We don’t like that. We don’t like that at all. Instead, we take the long way to do things. We make all the mistakes we need to make and eventually, sometimes, we succeed.
I’ve learned to listen. I assure you it took me some time. My overanalytical self would constantly question, mainly “why” and “how”. I’ve learned it’s better to take it in, honor it, apply it and then observe. You will find the answers to the “why” and “how” for yourself and it will be your lesson and take you one step closer to wisdom.
Note that, most of the time, good advice is free and comes from the mouths of our loved ones, through stories, songs, or even straight up.
