    What's The Best Advice You Have Ever Received?

    You can't understand somebody until you've walked a mile in their shoes.


    Not able to judge somebody until you put yourself in their position for true empathy.


    what is your favorite advice someone has given you?

    Remember the reasons you have for marrying the woman you are marrying.

    57 years later those are still in place

    I used to have a bad spending/gambling problem. I am not being light about your question when I say the best advice came from my husband when he said "Get your shit together NOW if you want us to stay together." I am off the bad habits, and we are going on almost 17 years married.

    From this day onward, walk easy on the earth, plant trees, kill no living things,
    live in harmony with all creatures, use no more resources than you need,
    restore the earth where you are, and listen...listen to what it is telling you.


    I actually did a painting with this as the theme...

    The best advice I ever received: "Hey, there's this guy you really should meet. You and he would be great together." I followed the advice.....we had 37 years of being great together.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    I can't remember who told me this, 'never start smoking or drink alcohol',terrible habits'.
    I never drank alcohol,but started smoking in my teens when pack of cigarettes was 35 cents. I was never a heavy smoker,usually took me 2-3 days to finish a pack I quit'cold turkey' around 1990 when a pack was $1 Sue

    Save a little money; it may be your only friend when you're all down and out.

    A friend told me "Find a lady that is "marriage minded" like yourself, with similar-to-same interests". I did and we've been married for 17 years now.

    I agree!

    When I started working there was an older fella that always said: "Save your money!".

    I ran into him a few years after I stopped working and told him how grateful I was for his simple advice.
