Women Should Consider These Three Things First When Getting Advice
Just like everyone else, young women need help from time to time in dealing with various aspects of life. Since women are widely known to be the more sentimental and emotional between the two sexes, they tend to be more inclined to seeking advice as well as tips in many things, including relationships, social life, jobs, health, and others. But the unfortunate fact about the kind of world we currently live in is that not all advice and tips are genuine and wholesome. There always will be instances when you seek the advice of someone who you trust and end up realizing that the advice you got had a concealed motive in it.
Now if you happen to be a woman seeking advice about life in general, it helps if you put some weight on these three factors first before doing so:
1 – First things first, figure out why you’re in need of advice in the first place.
The idea here is for you to really understand and acknowledge that you can’t decide on a specific issue or problem on your own. Once you do that, you eventually will come to realize that the only way to handle it is to ask for someone else’s opinion. One thing you must completely avoid is seeking advice not because you need it but because you just want everyone else to know you have some issues or problems you need to deal with. This is a commonplace in social media these days and it is a perfect example of a victim-mentality trend. The reason why you want to avoid this is because you’re just trying to get sympathy from others and it could lead to some form of attention addiction. Hence, you must make it a point to seek advice for the reason that there’s value in it.
2 – The next factor to consider is the person to whom you want to get the advice.
While there is no doubt that you’re seeking for great advice, you also need to factor in if the person is worthy of your trust. Many people are willing to listen, but not everyone is willing to hand out their genuine advice. Be smart in selecting the people you seek advice because some of them might only be willing to listen so that they can hear what you have to say and then talk about it to other people. Other than your most trusted friends, you can seek advice from professionals who make a living by giving life tips like psychologists, therapists, and psychics.
3 – Finally, you have to learn what makes an advice great.
You see, not all advice and tips are true to the heart, which means some of them don’t really have value. So before you act on an advice given to you, be sure you know that there is something good that could come out of it.
