Life + stuff: Stop listening
Do you listen to other people’s opinions?
Do you then change your mind, beliefs or behaviour based on those opinions?
It’s normally considered a good idea to listen to other people. In fact, society strongly encourages us to listen to our peers; parents, teachers, employers, partners, friends and mentors.
But what if they’re all wrong?
Do you ever stop and listen to your own heart? What is it saying? Do you trust it?
I have been told (and believed) all sorts of things throughout my life because I am essentially really gullible. I didn’t trust my own intuition and intelligence enough to listen.
I am trying to stop and listen now.
Do you listen to other people’s opinions? How do you sort the good advice from the total bollocks?
