So, even in the best of intentions, advice always comes from the wisdom of the giver.
Is there such a thing as good or bad advice?
Advice just is!
It is up to the recipient to assess the advice, and use their own inner wisdom to determine how they want to act - heed the advice or discard it. There is nothing wrong in soliciting for advice, in fact, for me, advice has a place in my growth. It can open up perspectives I may not readily see. However, it is my responsibility as the recipient, to decide! That decision starts with knowing, truly knowing myself and using my internal compass to navigate through the advice I just received.
