Is it true that when we most need advice we are least willing to listen to it? Or is good advice always welcome? Well, sometimes during our agitation, many people decide to not listen to advice, even though they really need it. I think that advice should at all times be welcomed, but sometimes people just don’t encourage your advice.
Most people are told as a child, “Don’t smoke! It is really bad for you! ” or something like that, but then later in life decide to smoke and then get addicted. Then, when they really need advice on stopping the addiction, they are not willing to listen and get the consequences. Good advice should be accepted, but some people don’t really care what happens until they calm down and fully realize what they have done. Of course, good advice should always be passed on, as good advice is never of any use to oneself.
Although sometimes people are willing to listen to your advice, for example when they are outside in the cold and want to warm up with a fire, but they can’t. First, they gather wood but did not gather enough, so when they finally got some flame, there is not enough wood to burn and it all burns out. Then, they would finally realize the truth in the saying, “Always gather three times more wood than you need.” At that time, it already is too late, and you can’t make a fire anymore…
So I think people should always accept good advice, and even though you might disagree, let them have a saying in it because then you might learn something very important.
