Best Advice?

What is the best advice that anyone has ever given to you? For me, after my dad died I received the usual sentiments and invalidating remarks on “signs” and “should have knowns”; however, through it all I received the best advice: “feel the feelings”. Through the years I have added to it: Feel your feelings, and apologize for none of them.
So what is your best advice?

“Never laugh at a pain you haven’t gone thru.”

Basically it means that you shouldn’t overlook, ridicule, mock, compare or belittle someone else’s suffering, ESPECIALLY if you’ve never had a similar struggle.

My mum taught me ‘if you want something doing, do it yourself’. So true, especially in my house!

Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid.

That is terrible for anyone to delegate worthiness to suffering. Hopefully you have been able to see you are worthy of happiness, and not because you have suffered the most.
Thanks for sharing!

Always do something worth while. Keep looking forward but learn from your past.
