Not for Thee: Advice

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

Daily Post Prompt.

There’s advice and there’s more advice

But the advice that we all reject

Is the advice we receive 

For being the people 

We are perceived to be.

And our response always is,

“Hey, but that’s not me.”


“If you only knew.”

Truth be told,

they don’t.

It’s up to us to tell them.


If we care for their unsolicited advice.
