Nagging or advice?

When my parent gave me advice, (to brush my teeth, sleep early, have better posture), I never followed.

Years go by. My back start to hurts, painful visits to the dentist, and hangover mornings. I suffered the consequences and change my habits. I took their advice.

In between, it was unpleasant years of nagging.

The trouble is when we seek to help the people we love we offer unsolicited advice. We rush, we didn’t get the full context. We forget that they don’t want what we want, they don’t see what we see, they don’t know what we do.

Good advice begins with enrolment. Are we going to the same destination? Are we on the same journey?

That’s the difference between unwanted and heartfelt advice.
