Advice is a form of nostalgia

I have been a generous man when it comes to dispensing advice, but a terrible person for taking it from others. Figuring out what advice to take and what to ignore is something that I still struggle with, and something I suspect I’ll always struggle with.

For a me to accept advice from another, I mean to really accept it, is as rare a phenomenon as the pollination of some tropical flower. Sometimes it’s better to trust your gut and be wrong (and learn from it) than take someone else’s advice and be wrong (and regret not trusting your gut).

I had hoped this was an astute view on advice, sorry all it’s become a meandering jotting of nonsense. Maybe I will write better tomorrow.
