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.
