It could feel like everyone you know wants to tell you how to live your life today. Co-workers who think they’ve been in your position (they haven’t), friends who think you’re not seeing the big picture (you are), and family members who are just worrying too much (tell them to relax). This unsolicited help comes with good intentions, so try to keep from rolling your eyes when you receive it. Be polite and keep an open mind. There could be one or two gems in there.
