We weren’t meant to figure this life out alone. Even though it’s tempting at times when folks have gotten on our last nerve and we don’t particularly want their “counsel.” Actually that’s when we probably need it most.
It helps to be particular about who we ask for input. For instance, I don’t ask my husband’s opinion when I’m choosing between which pair of shoes to buy, since he thinks black tennis shoes works for everything. Need a different color? Spray paint them is his motto. However if I need help understanding financial statements he’s my man. Likewise if I’m grieving I don’t go to someone who hasn’t suffered loss, or if I need gardening help my insurance man is probably not my go-to person.
So my advice…
Be selective, be discerning, because quite honestly, two heads are better than one.
