A Poem: Reject

One way to make someone
Feel intelligent is to
Give them advice,
Which they’ll naturally reject.

I think a lot of advice can be healthy, but I guess it depends on the relationship one has with the person. It’s easier to take advice from someone close than some casual aquaintance.

I had some guy I hardly know telling me what kind of work I should apply for. He kept nagging even when I made it clear that it was not something I wanted to do. But then it’s also a respect thing I guess, and something about minding ones own business.

Someone once told me, “advice-seekers have usually already made up their mind.” Further, “what they really want is someone else to blame if their choice goes wrong!”

It rang true to me when I heard it. Now, I try and only give my “common sense, experience, strength, and hope on an issue.”
