Did you know what one piece of advice that you are glad you ignored?

I scroll through Quora.

And one thing I find is this.

Did you know what one piece of advice that you are glad you ignored?

And answer has common theme,

You are the only person who knows what is best for you.

Become self-independent. Do your research. Learn everything that you can.

Books, interviews, the internet, people's experiences are all your advantage. Use them.

Other people that you are going to ask for advice, most probably they are clueless in their lives too.

Nobody knows what's really happening. Those who are watching news EVERYDAY have some amount of useful information than those who aren't.

Nobody knows how life going to be after lockdown. Some are saying it's going to be perfectly the same and some are saying its just opposite.

Here, approach would be to work on yourself. You can't change others or can't control the situation. But you can change yourself.

Either you can watch Netflix or you can transform yourself in this situation. Either watch 100 movies or gain another valuable skill. And get good at working-from-home.

This lockdown has taught us that we can't stop fake news. But we can become aware. So that it does not have tangible effects.

Nobody can know what you are and what you really want. What is in your brain. What are your interpretations of different situations?

The advice we get from parents is safe ones.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi

So, in the end, you know what is really good for you. So explore this beautiful world.
