Don't take advice from negative people

Sometimes we confide in others when we are going through a hard time. We have to be careful as in to who we confide in.

If we confide in people who have been in negative relationships then they will give us negative advice. When asked about relationship advice people will give their past experiences. They could not know a guy but will judge what he is like on what they have been through in the past.

It is important to be on guard but to also listen to your feelings. Look at the situation you are experiencing, look at the guy. Sometimes advice helps but it depends on the person who gives it. If you ask advice from a negative person you will end up making the wrong choices in the end.

Don't take advice from anyone. Advice is to be given, never to be taken!!!

"If we confide in people who have been in negative relationships then they will give us negative advice."

I have to slightly disagree with this statement. Anyone who has lived long enough has been in some toxic relationships at one time or another. This does not mean they will offer you "negative advice" especially if they love or care about you. They may only being sharing with you what they learned when they were in a similar situation.

Wisdom is priceless and worth a listen.

Just because someone does not agree with us or is not saying what we (want) to hear doesn't automatically mean they are offering negative or bad advice. Taking into account several points of view prior to making a final decision is a rational approach. Naturally unsolicited advice tends not to be valued as much.

In the end only you can decide what is right for you.
