Start listening more closely to the advice friends and family are giving you. It’s more complicated than you think, and a lot of what they’re saying to you is in some sort of code. You can pick up on the undertones if you use your listening skills. Of course, you don’t have to do exactly as they say, but their insight is incredibly valuable. Be prepared to hear things that aren’t exactly comfortable. But a lot of the time the truth isn’t always what we want to hear.
