I was thinking about this topic just this morning. I really don't like to take advice... if that is how it is presented. Now maybe if I was simply talking to a friend and she happened to mention something that I thought made sense, I would take it, but if she was sitting across the table from me and said... "this is what you should do", chances are I would get my back up and I am pretty sure that I wouldn't do it!
And to make things even worse, I think that I passed that trait on to my daughter. She will not listen to all of my words of wisdom if her life depended on it. And I have tried lol... many times.
I think that I will shut up from here on out!
