DAY NUGGET: HOW TO BE THERE FOR YOUR FRIENDS

                      

Sometimes you just need to take a step back, let people make their own mistakes, be there when they need you, and shut the hell up. At the end of the day, people are going do what they want to do anyway.

In any situation, a person will do what they want to do. Just be there because you can't force people into doing things you want them to do. People won't learn if mistakes aren't involved. Trying to change people for what you might see or think is the best for them is their choice. Over the years I have learned to mind my business. Sometimes your friends, siblings, family members, and associates don't need another mother, they need a friend, a listening ear. So be there despite what you think they should do, be there whether you think there are other ways or routes in life. Besides, how are they to learn if you continue to make a choice for them? Now, needless to say, if someone asks my honest opinion, I will honestly give it but otherwise, I won't say anything just listen. 

"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently". Henry Ford

I just want you to think about this topic and put these into your own life and see how your individual self could benefit from that. "Be quick to listen, slow to speak" one of my favorite scriptures James 1:19. What are your thoughts? Do I have a point?
