Wisdom or an Opinion?

Here's my opinion if you haven't actually been through something and learned from it, then go to give someone advice it is your opinion, not usually wisdom. Now I do believe that God uses people which is why I added the word usually. I also believe that when I hear something twice I had better check it, which I do with a group of very wise people. I have a friend who asks if I would like feedback before he tells me what to do, now that is wisdom! We all know what people say about opinions. If you don't, here - "Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one." Sorry for the little rant had to get it out:)

  1. I'm hoping he meant feedback before he "suggests" what you should do. I am trying harder to think before I speak, & avoid unsolicited opinions & advice for others, even if I know damn well I'm right. Another saying, "It's not only what you say, but how you say it." comes to mind. You can never tell how someone will perceive your thoughts & wisdom, even with the best of intentions. It usually turns out that you had the answer all along. "Go with the gut feeling."

  2. He is forever sober and a women's counselor so I listen to his suggestions! I just got a rude comment with someone saying I violation a tradition by having a donate button (it doesn't work anyway:), didn't know there were police in the program I got sober in. And how do they know what program I got sober in? Enough of that.

    I wanted to thank you so much for commenting and helping others on my blog, it means the world to me and to them also!

    Always a good idea to have faith in your counselor...
