Perspective over advice

#perspective

So many people are horrible at giving advice.

Myself included.

Because at the end of the day, my own experience is all I know. And all I ever can know. Try though I may, I can't quite put myself in someone else's shoes.

So I can't pretend I know what should work for someone else. Especially when I barely know what works for me.

But that doesn't mean that we should stay silent.

We should share our experiences. Our struggles. Our wins. There's wisdom to be had from the stories.

But we have to stop pretending we have the color-by-number answers.

Yes to perspective. No to advice.
