All that glitters is not gold, especially today. Someone could be only saying whatever it takes to get their way, even if it’s not totally true. In order to make sure you listen only to those who speak the truth, you might have to avoid listening to anybody for the time being. Be critical, be objective, and be skeptical. It might not make you the best company right now, but it will keep you safer, richer, and wiser in the long run.
