The only time I ever ask anyone for what might be seen as "advice", would be either in seeking professional advice from someone (and maybe seeking any number of "second professional opinions"; or else in a work setting when it wouldn't be "advice", but would instead be "direction" or "guidance" from a superior/supervisor. On the other side of things, I might seek, or at least want to factor in, "direction" or "guidance" from someone who may be working "under" me, maybe also for, say, my children (now grown, but regardless of that), or from anyone on whom some action I took would have impact.
Other than that, I don't ask for advice or other "two-cents' worth" from anyone because I'm secure and know enough when to trust my own judgment, how seek information from solid sources (when necessary) and then factor it into whatever I "have"; and only then "create my own advice to myuself". (lol)
For a number of different (and sometimes combined ) reasons, I do sometimes feel as if I'm wearing a sign around my neack that says, "PLEASE OFFER ME YOUR UNSOLICITED ADVICE, TIPS AND GENERAL IDEAS ABOUT ME AND MY LIFE ". Maybe that's why I never need to ask for advice; because besides not wanting or needing it, it generally comes flying at me from all kinds of people and all kinds of directions. Most of the time they mean well (occasionally, someone isn't being all that selfless)
Over the course of a little more than forty years of adult life, I've had, maybe, four or five times when (sick of being seen as "control freak" for not being interested in advice on me/my life; even though I have no interest in putting in my two cents on other people's lives); I've just figured I should go with what someone else says. Those few times have lead to completely and utter disaster (and I mean that in the truest sense of the word). So, maybe it took me those four decades to build up enough of those times when I didn't listen to me and instead went with someone else's "two cents" (mainly because I was tired of being criticized or resented for "never listening to anyone"; but at least now I've had enough of those times to just vow never to be "too tired to stand my ground" again.
The trouble is, in the meantime (and when it comes to some of those smaller incidents of unsolicited advice and well intended suggestions of what I should/could do), I let a w hole lot of people get away with thinking either that I'm weak, dumb and/or hopeless in one way or another.
