Everyone takes their own journey through life, so don’t apologize if you feel like going you own way today. No one else can truly understand what you are experiencing, so no one else has the right to tell you where to go next. When those in the know offer you unsolicited advice today, be polite and listen. But don’t feel obligated to follow it to the letter. They have your best interests at heart, but in the end their thoughts are based on their own goals, not yours.
