It’s always good to listen to the opinions of others. But you should ultimately decide what’s best for you and your life when it comes to making decisions, because you will have to live with them. We all make mistakes in life, but sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to learn from them. And there’s never anything wrong with getting advice or asking others for their opinions or asking for advice when in doubt. But it’s also important to listen to your instincts, and to be in touch with your own feelings, because no one will know truly know what is best for you, as good as you will.
Everyone is always going to have an opinion on what you do, and on how you live your life. And like I said before, listening to the opinions of others is great, but you need to ultimately be the decision-maker, and the one running the show for your own life. You need to feel confident and happy with the decisions that you make. As well, before making any big decisions in life, it’s imperative to think of the possible consequences that could arise down the line. And although we can never be 100% truly certain of most of the outcomes that our decisions could bring, by being smart and thinking wisely before making big decisions, we’ll have a better idea of what may or may not happen.
Being that other people will always have an opinion, you can only let their feelings and opinions affect you so much. When you start letting other people’s opinions take control over you and your emotions, it could affect you in a negative manner. And to top it off, it might even make you question what you want to do, even when you feel very certain about it. Remember, if you truly believe in something, and you know that what you’re doing is right and will benefit you in a positive manner, and you’ve thought of all of the possible consequences, then you should do what you feel is right.
Never forget that you are the one that’s going to have to live with the decisions that you make. And therefore you should be happy with whatever you decide to do in life. And when you’re in a relationship or married to someone, or even when you have children with someone, then you have to take their opinions into consideration as well as your own. But when you’re making decisions as a single person, you have to do what’s right for you.
So regardless of what other people think or say, if you believe in what you’re doing, go for it, and never give up on things that you truly believe in, despite what others might say. And G-d forbid, if you fall or fail in what you’re trying to do in life, pick yourself back up again, because we all make mistakes. There’s nothing wrong with failing, because that can be used as a tool to push you even harder, and towards finding new ways to go about getting what you want in life. But never for one second think that you should’ve, could’ve, or would’ve listened to the advice and opinions of others, just because things didn’t go your way in the end. At least not when you truly believed that what you were doing was right.
