What Women Should Consider When Getting Advice
Women need help in many different aspects of life. Because women are quite emotional and sentimental when it comes to handling things, it’s no surprise that they usually turn to people around them to get help in the form of advice or tips. Sadly though, not all tips and advice a woman can get from everyone is honest, pure, and without malice. 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 – The first thing you need to figure out is why you actually need advice.
The crucial part of it is being specifically sure that you’re not capable of deciding on a particular issue or problem yourself. 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. It’s a common occurrence in social media and you definitely don’t want to be labeled as someone who possesses victim-mentality attitude. While many women do it and feel there’s nothing wrong about it, you should know that there’s nothing pleasant about the addiction to receiving attention through sympathy. In the end, you just have to figure out if your need for advice actually comes with value in it.
2 – The next factor to consider is the person to whom you want to get the advice.
While you probably are more concerned about getting quality advice, you also would want to make sure you’re getting it from a trustworthy individual. Some are more than willing to listen to what you have to say but only a few will give their genuine advice or opinion. 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. Aside from your most trusted friends, you also can get advice from professionals such as therapists, psychologists, and psychics, all of whom are experts in giving advice about life in general.
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. Yes, it is true that you need help in the form of advice in order to deal with something, but it still is your responsibility to figure out if the advice is indeed worthy of following.
