Biased advices, the lesson of 2016

As a little summary:2016 has been the year where so many people around me has lost their close friends, family or the year where so many great historic people has died.
I remember talking to my mother after Alan Rickman passed how horrible it was, and discussing the events of death of David Bowie.
Then a few weeks later my mother dies (around 3am, 5th october), and then 2 months later we lose Carrie Fisher.
I know of family who’s been out and in of hospitals and one of my best friends lost his beloved dog a month ago who’s been with them for years.
I think year 2016 has been the most influenced year of them all (at least speaking from my own point of view). Its been the year of change.

The biggest lesson ever was the lesson to take in criticism and to be the one responsible for picking out which advices are biased and which arent.
– You choose which opinions that matters and which doesn’t, and the same goes for ‘useful advices’ from people.
People can spend years just doing what other people tells them to do and whats smart, which is a good way of avoiding to make mistakes. However you learn nadda by living after other peoples words.
I think choosing between which advices to take in and which is not going to make you grow is the hardest part in life.
Sometimes we need to look into ourselves and realise our mistakes, sometimes we NEED people to point out things.
But there’s also the times where people can point out things which remains biased.
Only you know how you work, you know when you need a break and you know your limits.
Being afraid of what others might think of you gets you nowhere.
Be open for self improvement, but remember there’s so many opinions out there and you’re OK to disagree with them too.
Your self value is not measured in other peoples views of things.
But be smart, and know when the opinions matters and when they dont!
