Can we learn about life by taking advice from family and friends? Why should we take advice? Before making hasty choices, it is always advisable to seek advice from people who faced similar situations.


In our life we come across different circumstances and problems. As we meander through the stages of life, we constantly learn about adapting to various situations. We learn through our mistakes, behavior and at times, we seek or get advice from friends and family. In my opnion, it is a good idea to seek and listen to the advice of friends and family.

Firstly, advice from a senior family member or a friend who faced similar situation is likely to be accurate. When people faced the problem earlier, they have more confidence in giving advice. For instance, I had trouble dealing with a hypocrite during my school days. Hence, I was able to give good suggestions to my niece who was going through a similar situation in school.

Secondly, listening to advice can provide more solutions to the problems. As you hear advices from friends and family members, you can make a mental note and then figure the best way to deal with the problem at hand. When I was not doing very well in my Math class, I took advice from friends. They adviced me to seek additional tutor help outside school. As a result, I joined evening tuiton classes and saw a remarkable improvement in my grades.

Lastly, when we seek advice or opnions, we can combine them and find a better solution. We may hear many persuasive advices. However, we can combine our own ideas with such persuasive advice and reach a creative solution for the problem. This creative approach can help us accomplish our goals easily. This is of great help when we need to make important decisions or face a difficult situation.

To summarize, life is unpredictable and full of surprises. We do not know what the future holds for us. However, if we have good friends and supportive family, we can seek their advice and face the toughest situations without much hassle. Thus, listening to the advice of friends and family, before making hasty decisions, is the best way to learn about life.

Advice will always help a person to take a decision. Most of the cases taking self decision always against as. The advice from the parents will be always good for our future. We have the right to decide what to do. It is not an easy thing to decide by self . For everything some times the use of advice may help us. Mostly advices from the elders will help us to take good decision because they seen the world more than we saw. They know what to do when a person in any situation because they have the experience about the world. The best example is when we are in a situation of career decision we will always be confused what to choose or decide for the future. An advice from experienced career councellor or an experienced elder may help in solving this problem. Positive advice may always keep you positively. But on other hand from lack of wisdom some advices may damage us. Remember decision is taken always done by us so keep think positively share the matter with a person whom do you will he or she can solve.
Very good article. Keep it up.
