AN UNBIASED EAR~Seeking advice in the age of overwhelming opinions~



Sometimes in life, we seek the advice of others.

Oftentimes, this is a very difficult thing to do.

It is hard to let others know we are having problems or have an issue that needs a solution.

It is hard to find an unbiased ear.

I have learned that upon seeking advice, opinions vary greatly, and these opinions often rest on which decision will benefit the person giving the advice.

You have:





They all have specific wants and needs from you, and will unintentionally (usually) try to guide you in the direction that most works for their benefit.

Unless you are dealing with a manipulative person, the advice giver most likely has the best intentions for you, but  self-interests  step in sometimes.

And, sometimes there are too many opinions floating around, too many voices.

So much so, that you might shut down and stop listening at all.


It is difficult to find an unbiased ear, but I urge you to actively seek one.

It is a wonderful thing to have someone you trust, no matter what their part in your life.

Having someone listen to you…REALLY LISTEN, is a wonderful thing.

Even better is when you find someone who is not affected by the choices you make.

They are outside looking in and usually offer the best of advice.

Remember to always consider your options before seeking advice from someone else, and try to have a goal (resolution.)

The person of wisdom you choose, will help you clear the muddy waters.
