Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes surround the subject of offering unsolicited advice, a subject I also wrote about in yesterday’s Daily Reflection. Offering unsolicited advice is often far more about the person offering it, than the person receiving it…

“I never give advice unless someone asks me for it. One thing I’ve learned, and possibly the only advice I have to give, is to not be that person giving out unsolicited advice based on my own personal experience.” (Taylor Swift)

“The people sensible enough to give good advice are usually sensible enough to give none.” (Eden Phillpotts)

“Stop giving advice to people who don’t ask for it.” (Phil Cooke)

“Unsolicited advice is always meddling.” (Jonathan Lockwood Huie)

“When we give advice, we want to be helpful, we want to get someone to do what we want or what we think is right, we think we have the answers, that we know more than others, or we want to reduce our own anxiety, as sometimes we’re really worried about a loved one and feel powerless. We don’t know what else to do, so we give unsolicited advice to calm our anxiety, to feel like we’re doing something.” (Sharon Martin)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
