Over the years, when someone has asked me for advice and then seemingly ignored that advice, or gone against it…I was offended.
Why bother asking my advice if you’re going to ignore it?
You’re asking me for advice, presumably because you know I know more than you, so why do the opposite?
But that’s silly.
People seek your advice for any number of reasons.
And just because they choose not to do as you suggested, doesn’t mean they’re ignoring you.
Maybe your advice just wasn’t quite right for their unique situation at that specific time.
Remember, it was your Advice that they sought…not your Instruction.
