Letter VI Published – Stop giving people advice
Letter VI was published on 17th May 2019.
Here’s an excerpt:
When someone asks for help we default to giving advice.
We bring our bias, or experience, our perspectives, our ideals and our expectations to the table. You may have your own desires for that person, but it’s not about you. It’s not your life.
If we want to truly help the people we love, we need to stop telling people what to do. Instead, we must listen deeply to what they are saying, understand how they feel and ask more questions.
