When Not To Listen To a Friend

Friends are often just the people we need in our lives to give us good advice – especially when it's advice we don't want to hear. On the other hand, there are times when we shouldn't listen to our friends. Here are 3 times you should disregard a friend's advice:

1. When they're telling you to do something you know is wrong.

2. When their advice is actually a back-door way of violating your personal boundaries.

3. When their advice diminishes your vision of who you are and how you show up in the world.

  • How about these three:

    4. When they are telling you NOT to do something you know you should

    5. When they have no experience or knowledge in the area of advice they are sharing (you know – when they just make up something just to try to sound helpful)

    6. Right after you just got in a fight with them
