My older cousin give me advice recently. It's all about me, it's me being sick. I am sick for 4 years, I have leg problem. I cant walk far and standup for a long time, until now I'm still suffering from this illness. The advice of my cousin to me is, to stay strong and always pray. But its just came out from my other ear, because its not new to me. A lot of people advicing that to me and it doesn't make my situation better.
September 3, 2017, 8:13 am
Ah man...I really feel bad for you after reading your story.
I really hope you get better man...
September 3, 2017, 9:08 am
Actually you are correct there Justin, as long as people don't experience what you have, it doesnt mean that they can really relate. Still you take care of yourself
September 3, 2017, 11:46 pm
Hello there. I know this is not same as you but my friend was recently diagnosed with cancer and she loves cancer humor. The more inappropriate the better. After all, I guess living with a serious illness can lead to being serious all the time if one doesn't have people to laugh with, especially by dealing with illness directly. You are more lucky and better than my friend. Appreciate the advice you get from people. Stay positive and have a great life.
September 4, 2017, 4:23 am
Thanks for all your reply. I really appreciated what you all say. I'm staying strong and hoping maybe one day I'll get better.
September 4, 2017, 6:29 am
Sorry to hear about that, Justin. I know you will, just keep the faith! I will include you in my prayers. Worry no more! Everything is going to be okay. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger! So carry on and do not give up on yourself. Please take care! We are here for you.
September 5, 2017, 11:08 am
Hey bro, I won't say I understand what you're feeling right now because I'm not in your shoes. I'll just pray for strength and wisdom be showered upon you by God. I'll pray for your healing physically and spiritually. Stay strong!
September 4, 2017, 10:21 am
Sorry to hear it, bro. The best advice I can give you is to stay strong. What makes us strong in this is the hardships and difficulties we face. Everything is meant to teach us something and there are no exceptions. Stay strong and don't give up and eventually, your condition will improve.
September 4, 2017, 11:42 am
Thanks to all of you. Feel better when I read your comments. Maybe now, I would start thinking positive thoughts and making my self better. Thank you to all of you.
September 6, 2017, 4:18 am
I'm sorry to here that, but please dont lose hope. I know it is hard. Always pray to God and ask for strength and guidance, trust Him and have faith. Whatever we are
are going through, whatever illness will be healed if it's God will. Don't give up and leave it all to God. I hope you will recover soon. Godbless.
September 6, 2017, 7:06 am
No problems man! Feel free to count with me for advice or whatever I can help you with!
October 3, 2017, 10:18 pm
Sorry to hear about that. 4 years is a long time to suffer from a leg problem. What your cousin said is perfect. You should make sure to stay strong and to pray (if you're religious of course). Never give up. Think about Paralympians. They have problems with their legs, hands or other body parts but they have stayed strong and never given up and have become successful.
September 7, 2017, 8:36 am
Dude, just think that having leg problem can't stop you from achieving your goals in life. You should continue dreaming. You don't need the pity of other people. You are still a human being! You can do anything despite your condition. There are plenty of things that you can do without using your legs and the best thing is you can still do good to other people.
September 8, 2017, 7:46 am
I feel really bad for you man. I will pray to God for your recovery. Always be positive and believe in God. Never remain sad and think you can't achieve anything. You can and will do anything you wish to achieve.
September 9, 2017, 4:50 am
But perhaps you could do some things that can make your situation better because even if you are sick you can still talk to others and can inspire them. You could be a good example of a person who has sick but still fighting for life and through that, you can inspire others.

My mother give me recently advice not to go to Internet shop during late evening. Maybe because of bad happenings here in our place. She just want to protect me and I feel her love while she says those words. I feel so blessed having her in my life. So dude you better listen to your mother. Hahaha. Just a piece of advice.
September 3, 2017, 8:17 am
Nice to hear that you are polite and yes you should always listen to your mother. I'm a mother too so I know the feeling.
The recent advice that I received was only yesterday. My husband told me not to be too strict with my teenage son. He said that I need to understand my son sometimes and give him a chance to express his point. Well lately, I got problem with my son because he was too lazy to help me cleaning the house. I want to train him to clean his own room and how to cook so that in the future, I am confident that he can manage his life to live independently. But he was so hard headed and lazy so that's why my husband give me some advice and yes I do consider his advice.
September 4, 2017, 3:39 am
I am glad you appreciate your mom's words. You are right that she only wants to protect you and make you feel her tender love. Parents are focused on how then can help their kids, keep them safe from harm and succeed. Sometimes changing hurtful behaviors is one of those ways. I believe you are a good daughter.
September 4, 2017, 4:32 am
Whenever a loved one meticulously advises and forewarns us of any potential danger that lies ahead, you are correct in that we should feel blessed to have such a one in our lives. A lot of times the person may simply know about, say, the Internet shop that we ourselves may not know and therefore could not foresee what our loved has now brought to our attention. Also, when advice is very carefully being shared with us by someone, our not turning away that advice can be nice for us that we indeed did listen to every word. Very nice way of looking at things.
September 5, 2017, 10:28 pm
I remember when I was in high school my father used to fetch me in internet cafe during late evening. He always angry at me when I am playing dota at internet cafe. But when I grew up, I understand where he is coming from. He just want me to be safe and to be in good path. He always tell me to stop playing dota and study hard. I study hard but not stop playing dota. I graduated in college and I know he is proud of me.
September 6, 2017, 4:24 am
Got an advice from a very close friend.Don't lend money more than you can forgo.It can be annoying giving someone money and he or she refuses to pay back and you can't do anything about.It can be very annoying.
September 3, 2017, 8:22 am
true. Can relate to that I lend someone a thousand bucks but now he is missing. He is not responding to my messages and calls though, right now I am suffering the consequences
September 3, 2017, 11:48 pm
I can relate too. One ex friend of mine borrowed $200 from me. We agreed on what day he would pay me back based on his pay period from his job. He ended up not paying me back and also not at least letting me know he couldn't pay me back; which is the main principal. When I told him I would come to his house to collect my money he threatened to call the cops. Fat Joe25 you know who you are. If he can take the time to call the police because I want my money then he can take the time to find a job and pay me my money. I am sure even the police would be like, "Instead of wasting our time because your a b*tch and choose not to pay back; how about just pay back the fu*king money."
September 10, 2017, 2:50 am
My Godfather recently advised me to pursue my study. He told me that while I still have the chance and the energy, I should continue my study. He is right, education is really important for a better work and a brighter future. He even offered to sponsor my study so it will never be a problem for school expenses. I was touched but did not accept his offer.
September 3, 2017, 8:27 am
My soon to be husband advised me not to let my half siblings used and abused me. He knew my family very well, most especially my siblings, in fact he doesn't like them. I can not blame him because I was used and fooled many times by my own family. However, my love for my family is bigger than the pain they have caused me so I'm always on their side whenever they need me. I must admit that I am hoping that they will changed someday and we will become a family full of love, peace, tolerance and understanding. Also, I am praying that my soon to be husband will accept my siblings someday.
September 3, 2017, 8:32 am
My mom is always giving me advice, she's like my human form conscience. She says that sometimes I can be very negative, like I can think in a pessimistic way, I've told her that I'm nothing but realistic, because I rather see the real thing and not an illusion. So, she gave me the advice to be more positive instead, not to be thinking ideal things but to have the strength to think that what I'm thinking can be possible. I'm still working on it, because is not an easy job, specially in my situation, but hope I can get better on it.
September 3, 2017, 8:48 am
That is great advice, and I have heard similar things from my mother! I struggle with placing too much importance on the negative things, and also on negative things I cannot control. Finding the strength to shift the importance to being grateful for what I have and open to new opportunities is something I am trying to do every day. And it does actually make me feel a lot happier
September 3, 2017, 4:14 pm
Hi, since I was complaining to my friends about my hard job that is paid with the lowest salary ever, my friends started to give me advises to leave my current job and look for another one. Every one of my friends had a different advice on what job should I try.
I do appreciate their concern about me and I listened to all their advice and I am still thinking what to do!
September 3, 2017, 8:51 am
Ah, that must be a hard decision. I think that you should just do whatever you most feel comfortable with. If you feel like you can easily find a better paying job then go for it... otherwise you might wanna first stick with your current job and save some money. Then try your luck in getting a new. I wish you the best of luck with your decision! I am sure that it will work out in your favor.
September 3, 2017, 2:28 pm
You should probably join one direction lol. Kidding aside, get some rest days if you are tired of thinking. I mean, go to a vacation somewhere near and try to think about what you really want to do. Sometimes we get too stressed out thinking about things that we can't achieve and that sometimes cloud our decision making and judgment so a good day or two rest would be nice.
September 4, 2017, 7:01 am
The recent advice I just received is from my godfather. I look up to him in almost everything except if it's impossible for me to consult him before making a decision. This is because he has never being wrong with his advice and directions.
Recently, he just make I very clear to me not to trust easily and that I should be weary of those whom I call friends because they are the ones who will bring about my demise without my seeing it coming.
September 3, 2017, 8:56 am
I was recently having some serious problems and my dad really helped me in this difficult time. He advised me not to get discouraged by failures and even if I fail to get up and fight again till I reach my goal. He taught me to be strong and to take every decision with a clear mind.
September 3, 2017, 9:06 am
Exactly...My dad always gives me advice like that and i feel really lucky having him in my family.
September 3, 2017, 9:09 am
Fathers are people who sometimes don't know how to express their emotions or feelings, which sometimes we misunderstood them that they don't care about their wife or children but deep inside their families are the most important people in the world. I have an experience where I had a financial problem and my father was the one I approached. He didn't give me any of he's money and told me that you're not a man if you don't handle your own problem which makes me very mad that I actually, want to prove him wrong. From that day I didn't ask any of my father's help to any problem I encounter. Then one day my father and I was having a drink with our relatives then suddenly told them that he was very proud of me because I didn't ask for any of he's money or help and I was able to become man better than him. I was actually surprised that he was giving me advice for my sake. So, I agree that fathers tend to give good advice to their children for their own sake.
September 4, 2017, 7:20 am
One important advice my friends gave is never bet more than you can afford to lose.I have been addicted to gambling for years although it never made my life worse or anything like that.
It's an important advice because it can fit everywhere else.
September 3, 2017, 9:11 am
I met up with my friend recently and we went to grab some coffee. He was telling me about some nice job opportunies and was wondering if I was interested. Sensing the hesitation from my expression, he told me this - "What ifs and if onlys leave a much bigger void than failure. If you have the opportunity, grab it and try to own it. Worrying and doubting what has yet to pass is useless and a waste of time. Even if you fail, you'll still learn from it, right? That is still better than overthinking things and ending up achieving nothing but what ifs and if onlys that will haunt you for a long time".
September 3, 2017, 9:20 am
Me recently have an advice came from my girlfriend she said that i should minimize my playing hour of dota 2 to avoid eyes problem at first advice i just resist it and take it for granted and the second time around she is looking kinda mad still play 4hrs straight then i stop because i don't want to make her sad and also i realize that she is right.
September 3, 2017, 9:57 am
This recent advice I received was from my godmother. I was feeling down lately and I just want to quit life. She told me to never give up on my dreams and don't let my fears hinder my success.
I graduated college last year at age 25, I never experience working somewhere before and I almost feel like no company will accept me. I think it is already too late to start my life and earn money to support my family. In short, I have a lot of insecurities and I overthink most of the time. Whenever she sees me looking so hopeless, she always tries to talk to me and give me advice. She always helps me cope up with my life struggles.
I respect my godmother as she serves as my second mom. She is the perfect example of her advice. She also became a breadwinner to her family and despite all her hardships, it really pays off since they have now stable life. She doesn't have her own family since she dedicated her life to her mom and to her siblings. I really admire her and she inspires me to just go on with my life.

2 hours ago my best friend boss advise me to stop trading daily in Philippine stock exchange because i might loss rather than gain. He told me also to invest in long term. And i said "ok" but next tuesday i will try to trade again. Lol!!!!
September 3, 2017, 11:23 am
Haha, you made me laugh. Well, your boss might be right if you're gambling all of your money away in the stock market but if you're wise and only use some extra money then it shouldn't be a big issue. Especially if you're good at it and know when to buy/sell certain stocks. I guess he just meant to advise you well because he cares about you
September 7, 2017, 3:05 pm
My boss give me piece of advice on saving. He shared his financial hardships back then when he was starting out as a regular employee. He taught me on how should i plan for my hard-earned money. He told me that before i spend i should keep part of my salary and the left penny of my salary is what i should spent wisely.
September 3, 2017, 11:27 am
I don't usually ask for or get advice from other people. I sort out plans and deal with my problems on my own -- I do ask for and get help but help is not the same as advice. Advice isn't really helpful anyway -- the individual giving the advice simply does not and never will have the same perspective as you so they can't possibly have perfect enough knowledge about your life to make suggestions on what to do regarding any aspect of it. The only one that can advise you is yourself.
September 3, 2017, 12:00 pm
I recently had an advice from my mom and my brother that its so confidential that I can't post it here. Lol, I did do some of there advice. Only sum of it. ^_^
September 3, 2017, 12:36 pm
whatever illness that is bro just remember nothing last forever. so you need to stay strong , be positive and keep fighting till the day you'll feel better.
feeling better doesn't necessarily mean being out of illness, but you could feel better by having love and support with you.
just remember everyone is fighting a battle you're not alone.
if you need someone to talk to just hit me a message
September 3, 2017, 1:42 pm
My mother advised me that I should focus in life for getting a good job so that I can live by my own. and that's what im doing right now. I'm just waiting for a call from the company that I applied for work. I really want to get that job so I can give everything to my mother and I could help my brother and sister.
September 3, 2017, 1:53 pm
Most often I tend to receive advice from my partner since we live together. Otherwise also from my parents and friends. I know that they all mean well but I do admit that unless they give me some really valid advice with a good point, I ignore it.
The most recent advice was actually from my mother. She gave me some tips on how to approach an issue that I had with my friend. She knows the friend from when I was a child so what she said played a big role and I fully accepted her wisdom. I won't go into too many details since it's personal but everything got resolved due to her help
September 3, 2017, 2:26 pm
I must say that my mum has been supportive and advises me on almost every step I take in life. the recent advise she gave to me was about money management which is all about saving money for the rainy days, that is times in which I may not have the money to spend that much. Honestly, I felt touched by that advice for it made me had a rethink on how I spend money while I considered what the future holds for me.
The advise made me realize that I have been mismanaging money for so long and the need to start saving no matter how little that I can, so that in the future, I can be able to fall back on those savings when things go bad in life or there is need to make expenses that are crucial to me in life. I love my mum for her words of wisdom have helped me in life.
September 3, 2017, 5:15 pm
Someone really close to me recently told me that I tend to think that other people "think like I do" and that I can sometimes be disappointed when they do not. I asked her what she meant, and she said that it's not that I expect people to have the same thoughts, feelings, ideals, or opinions as me--she said I am open-minded and easy to talk with--it's that I think that they perceive things in the intuitive or deeper way that I do, and that most people mean just what they say and there is no other level to it. I tend to overthink things, and she reminded me that a lot of things are just surface level and superficial. I think that having this pointed out to me is good advice. I am a very passionate person, and I tend to always be looking for deeper truths, even in areas when there are most likely no any.
September 3, 2017, 5:45 pm
My mother is chock full of health and nutrition advice as she is very health-conscious and has a floor-to-ceiling bookcase full of health and nutrition books. So my most recent piece of advice was from her about drinking water while eating. Apparently, if you drink too much water immediately before, during or after a meal, you run the risk of diluting your stomach acid too much. When your stomach acid is too diluted, you wouldn't be able to digest your food properly and therefore will not absorb as much nutrition as you normally would. Having since done my research on the matter, I have found contradicting and supporting evidence so not sure which to believe now.
But over the years, I've learned a lot about how to take care of my health from my mother, and I will be forever grateful.
September 3, 2017, 6:17 pm
Health has always been part of our basic regulation for a better life. Even the simplest things would do great things. It's better to be aware ahead of time than regret the things that we knew and ignored it.
September 28, 2017, 10:28 am
"Don't look back and keep moving forward." I've had ended a 2-year relationship last June and while the wound is still fresh, I'll never forget this phrase that my dad said to me when he saw me crying. He's not much of a talker but the fact that he kept me company that night made me appreciate my family more. I'm still trying my best to be better and enjoy life with the help of my closest friends and family but also, this hardship made me realize how lucky I am to have these special people by my side.
September 3, 2017, 8:40 pm
Now this is very good advice for sure. We can't stagnate in any aspects of our lives, be it professional or personal. Sure, we all need time to grieve and to heal when things don't go our way or go terribly wrong, but once a healthy process of that has been accomplished, we must move forward. Paralyzation is a type of death in an emotional situation such as yours. I went through a break-up after a six year relationship once, and it damn near almost killed me, but it gets better in time, and son you will just see it as a learning experience. There will be scars, but the wounds have healed. I am glad you have family to be there for you.
September 4, 2017, 10:01 am
If you are tired. You can rest but do not quit. That's what my male boss is always telling me. I won't quit in life, there's a lot of people depending on me.
September 3, 2017, 9:37 pm
You won;t quit. You are doing the best for yourself. You are doing this for the better you because you know that you have so much that you can do than what you are doing now.
September 28, 2017, 10:30 am
The recent advise that I received was from my father where he says that I should do what I want while I'm young, and I may want to consider getting a better job overseas. I openly brought up the topic on that to him because on how I view my current work, although I enjoy it because of the new experiences that I'm acquiring, I find the environment lacking of motivation and disappointing. Most of my colleagues, even how postitive you are to look at your work, brings you down. Every step up that you do, will without a doubt raise flags and do everything they can to bring you down. It's very suffocating, sadly I'am not able to leave due to a contract bond. What I'm doing now is waiting and getting everything I can from the company, without bringing anyone or the company down of course.
September 3, 2017, 10:49 pm
Love yourself first anybody else. I don't usually thought myself lately. I always think about my family, friends and boyfriend. But I realize some of them don't really appreciate me and value me as a person.
September 3, 2017, 11:52 pm
Depends on the problem. In my case, I appreciate all the advice I received from family and friends whether simple problems that we encounter every day or problems that are unusual. I listened to their pieces of advice well but at the end of the day, it's all up to you.
September 4, 2017, 1:12 am
The best advice I recently received was from my Granny. She told me "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." It has driven me forward to pursue a career Technology and I really find something I am passionate about. It doesn't feel like a job for me. I am always excited to get up everyday and work because my job is something I am really interested in.
September 4, 2017, 4:09 am
Wow, maybe this advise would really suite me well. But I don't know if gaming can be called a job, lately though the gaming community has been on a rise and can support your carreer though I still think that it is a hit or miss because it solely depends on your skills. I've been thinking of what-ifs, what if I spend hours of training that so called game, what if I focus on gaming what will happen, etc. It's all foggy to me, so here I am working on a systems integrator company.
September 6, 2017, 5:40 am
My lovely mother always gave me some advice in terms of whether to study or work. My mom always told me that I need to study before I work so I can get a decent job. I’ve been an undergrad student for almost 2 year and I’m currently looking for job that suits me well, for being lazy and being an introvert. But my mom would also tell me that do what you actually want and what I’m good at because that’s what’s life for, is for you to have fun.
September 4, 2017, 4:31 am
I recently learned that I should pay more attention to saving money than spending money. This way I can do more control over my finances. And I have followed that suggestion. And so far that is working out for me. I know that people who are not saving and instead spending are living the life. So in order to balance that part, I have massively saved and now making sure that things are going to be lot easier and better. In such case you can see that people who advised me to save effectively are giving better advice for now.
September 4, 2017, 5:08 am
I live in the Philippines and the city I'm living at is next to the town where the Philippine soldiers and terrorist are fighting, its literally just one hour drive. I have four Muslim friends( I'm a Christian ) and there are times where I want to hangout with them or go for a jog around 5 am. I asked my parents if I can hangout with them, when I ask parents whenever I want to go with my friends they advice that they can allow me to hangout with them but I can't go and sleep in their house or stay long hours because of the terrorist wars and also because my friends are Muslims. I feel really sad that my parents view my friends that way and I try to always tell them that they are good people but because of the war going on here I think some people changes their perspective to things
September 4, 2017, 5:55 am
Yes, it was a stranger, who advice me with showing others current condition. I always complain about myself, but when told me, about people who were lack of physical parts of their body. The person he showed me had no two legs, and still working hard. He even work all day, and never complain about his job everyday. What makes me pierce into my heart was the man was so hardworking, and refuse to show him mercy.
I thought about it everyday of how, so many people just accept their current situation, and work with it. I was so inspired to follow his believed, and stop complaining of everything. I start looking more jobs, and stop complaining. When, someone start complaining, you told your mind that, you can't do it, that's how he told me.
September 4, 2017, 6:42 am
The advice is to always look forward, never bow and chase your goals. Do not allow anything to stop you if you have big dreams, you can accomplish them, but you have to work hard for them. As I am studying a lot of people give me this advice, because my study is not easy and it does require a lot of effort and I'm gonna give it.
September 4, 2017, 7:00 am
I was dating someone, we liked each other and we were so close to formalize the relationship but she got scared because she is a very insecure girl and she was getting in love so, she wasn't sure if I loved as much as she loved me and she asked me to stop the relationship for a while. Friends of mine told that it was a good idea letting her go because she is a very complicated girl so if she spends some time alone she can realize what she really wants.
September 4, 2017, 7:24 am
I just took my final examination in college and in the last page of our test paper, our professor put some quotes, "There's no
if you don't review." and I think it's funny but I think that's a great advise for us to always review before taking examination. Examination is just a piece(s) of paper but the effort that you put to review is priceless.
September 4, 2017, 7:24 am
As a student, I encounter many different problems specially about school. One of that is my thesis which I am having a problem of what to do? You know that a thesis is very important in college in able to graduate from it and I found it really difficult. It's very hard to choose what study will be available for me, and how will I get to pass on this. Then, I read a post on a social-networking site, and ideas are just pumping into my head as I breathe. I try to write that ideas and consulted my adviser for it. I was told to choose what is really significant one, what will be affordable and what will be in my range of time. Then, I am conducting my thesis now, hoping to pass and graduate.
September 4, 2017, 7:36 am
I recently had an advice from my father for my work, because I just started working in the same company with him. The advice that he gave me was to never answer back to my boss even if he was wrong. he said that he knows that it doesn't seem right but it's just how it really works. We both know that our boss is a really good and great man, because my father has been working for him for more than 25 years now. I think he just said that because his worried that I may say something inappropriate that will make our boss mad. And also maybe it's because our boss already more than 50 of age and he tends to be forgetful, so even if I do things that he asked for and then gets angry at me for doing it because he forgot that he was the one that ordered it, I should just keep quite and wait for the time he remembers it. Because our boss is nice and he knows when he did something wrong and admits mistakes. So I'm really grateful for my father and boss. And I will always follow or take the advice of my father because he has much more experience than me in the corporate world.
September 4, 2017, 8:40 am
Recently my workmate has been telling me a lot about life. It might not be a direct advise for me but I have learned a lot of lessons from her. I think having a realization on someones life is a great tool, too. I don't still consider all of it but I know time will come that it will come in handy. I listen to people with those who are already experienced, they teach me a lot of lessons.

The recent advice I received is come from my mother. She said that I must always take care of my body to prevent any sickness. I follow what she say and now I maintain my body to be healthy.
September 4, 2017, 9:48 am
Yes, all elders give that advise and it's really helpful. We should be very thankful they are reminding us of it. We may not notice it now but when the time comes you should remember that well. Most people never realise the things they have before it's gone.

My mom told me recently that i should eat more to gain weight, sleep 8 hours a day, Because i literally can't sleep at night due to mixed thoughts. Oh i forgot my friends and family keeps on telling me that i should get a girlfriend for to be more inspired in life. I don't even see that as a solution to problems though.

"Isn't being scared means you're into something important?"
The most recent advice I received was from a TV series which I watched for the nth time 2 weeks ago. The statement has really big impact on me. This reminds me that in following what you really want or need being scared is just a waste of time. Fear is an indicator that the outcome of that event is important to you, so might as well do the best you could to overcome fear and achieve it. Whenever I tell that statement to myself, I become courageous when making tough decisions which afterwards makes me even tougher within.

I recently got an advice from a person whom I may call jamiz. His advice to me is about applying a job online. He told me to be patient and to be optimistic. Since I am new in an online world I thought his advice was very helpful for me to improve my skills and my experience.
September 4, 2017, 11:32 am
Newbies on the online world needs more advise like this! I've recently just started doing online jobs and I'm kinda having a hard time. The place would be a much better place with these helpful advice, though I've seen many, it's just that they are scattered. Lol
September 6, 2017, 5:56 am
Best advice i received is "If you want to be rich, Live like a poor"!
This is a very inspiring advice that i get from my friend.It really make sense, i need to budget my money properly
and not to spend on not important things. I should always have extra money saved, or invested.
September 4, 2017, 11:34 am
This is so right in many ways, even if you have surpassed being poor and became rich this advice would still fit the bill. This is a life lesson that you should learn early on so you won't have to struggle when living alone. I learned this the hard way and had to budget really hard for a week.

My mother in law came by to visit and we talked about a lot for things specially the recent issue I had with his son so she advised me to be patient and be more understanding, forgive a hundred times and love each other. And I don't know pretty much how to do it now. But then her words motivates me everyday and pray that it will soon be fine.
September 4, 2017, 11:48 am
I got an advice from the movie "the three idiots" where one character said that "follow excellence then success will chase you". Since I'm an engineering student, I feel motivated to study hard everyday so that I'll learn things and understand it. I always want to become a successful engineer someday but I'm too lazy and choose to do nothing during my free time. So because of that movie I've watched, I was enlightened to study hard and be not to become a lazy person.
September 4, 2017, 11:55 am
I so love that movie! That is the first movie that motivated me more in my studies and in myself. I hope you'll get what you want to be in the future! Ourselves are the only barriers to what we can do so much.

My father is the one who always showers me with advice
He recently advices me to wake up early in the morning. I usually wakes up in the morning at 9.00 am, due to my busy schedule and late night routines. My father hates that
Sometimes, it sounds boring and irritating, but often I understand that what he is saying is good for me and try to change myself.
September 4, 2017, 12:00 pm
Well, my father is the one that usually give me advice, and when he is doing that, what I usually say in my mind is "Your advice has been duly noted and according flushed
. Most parents don't know how to dish out advice, without getting you triggered, and that's the case of my dad, when he is giving you advice, you will feel like splitting his head, so he can think twice
September 4, 2017, 4:09 pm
There is this recent advice that I got from a pastor who visited my local church a few weeks ago and I wanted to share this to you even if some of you do not believe in God. So here goes.
He starts his advice from a story wherein he goes to an island together with 3 people, riding a motor boat. While riding the boat, the weather is sunny and good, but a few minutes after that calm boat ride, winds start to pick up and panic overcomes every one riding that boat that day. He is silently praying and praying for the winds to calm down and not to topple their boat over. But to his dismay, the winds never changed. Fear grew more and more inside him. and at one point thought that it may be the end of their lives. he asked himself, why is it that nothing is happening, I must change how I pray. So after that, He silently prayed once more and asked God to take away his fear and endure the boat ride because he has a faith that God will take care of them. The winds remain strong but he has found peace amidst the storm, so to speak. He says he can sing praises while the strong wind blows. And this is how he translates it.
In our life, we come across a period wherein no matter how sure you are, or how careful you are, you still end up in a situation where fear creeps up in you because you are uncertain of what the future will bring you. Sometimes even having faith, it still harbors great fear in us and our prayers seemed to be unanswered for so long. It may seem that nobody is listening to our pleas anymore. The advice is this: look at your situation in a different angle. Pray for your situation differently, it might be time to pray that instead of removing us in the uncertainty of the situation, pray for clarity instead. Pray for fear to be removed so that you get peace that this too shall pass and ask for guidance.
Ever since that day, this advice got stuck to me and realized I have been so hung up on something and got so frustrated and never realizing that I can change how I look at it and become proactive in dealing with it.
September 4, 2017, 9:07 pm
My husband who always give me an advise, and just recently when I talked to him about something, he told me that what ever decisions I made he always supported me and prayed for me. After that even he is at work he always remembered me, everytime he's not busy he would texted me and told me that I can make it because he always there for me no matter what.
September 4, 2017, 10:08 pm
I think that it is wonderful that you have such a supportive and caring spouse, This is nothing to be taken advantage of or to under-estimate. I have been in many bad relationships, so if you have found someone who treats you this way and supports your decisions, you should hold onto him. I finally found someone who supports me this way as well, and it has made all of the difference in my life.
September 6, 2017, 1:37 pm
I'm so blessed to have an amazing group of people to work with. We always start our week with a motivational thought which is shared a team member assigned per week. The thought goes like this "Growth must be intentional. Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow is going to get better." I personally like it because of its simplicity and outstanding meaning of determination.
September 5, 2017, 12:38 am
This is a good thing to start the day. And you are so lucky that you have that kind of group in work because that's when you grow more. THat's what people needs to have in their workplace not just always doing work work but also have a time to reflect.
September 28, 2017, 11:22 am
My sister and I fought over the smallest stuff we could find but we pretty much know what our mistakes is after we cool down our head.My mom advises me what she always say to have more patience with my sister as she's going through adolescence and it will not last that longer.Well I know cuz I've also been there but for some reason it's still irritating.
September 5, 2017, 1:05 am
Been a license at my profession. But because I don't have any work experience, it is hard for me to land a job. My two cousins who have the same profession as mine told me that it is normal to feel rejected most of the time on searching for a job because I don't have experience that the company is looking for. They told me that they also have been in my shoe years ago. They advice me to be patient, be humble and grab every opportunity that is going to knock. My time will just come, and that I should just be faithful of what I believe in for success is just there on the corner waiting for me.
September 5, 2017, 3:35 am
I believe in you! Indeed, you just have to be patient since you are just in a phase like other people have been. But of course, still be wise with your decisions. Not all opportunities would come clean and I believe you know your worth. The job that you are dreaming about is just around the corner, it just needs a perfect timing so just hold on, it will come to you eventually. I wish you success in your endeavors and hope you always keep your feet on the ground.
September 9, 2017, 11:41 am
The last advice i received was to get some exercise to correct some chemical imbalances in my body due to anxiety, stress and depression. My partner told me that. Sometimes he's such a jerk but i know he's just
trying to look out for me.
September 5, 2017, 6:44 am
The advice that I received last time to someone important in my life is, don't rush things take it by step by steps action there's no short cut to success you have to persevere everyday to get to your goal, why you started, don't forget it be it your motivation.
September 5, 2017, 9:39 am
My most recent advice was form a dear friend. She told me to be more patient with my little brother as he always gets on my nerves because of his laziness,smart mouth and hard head but it really just went out the other ear
September 5, 2017, 11:36 am
An advice by my elder sister recently is I should learn how to drive a car. I am considering it and I want to do what she advised me. I just need to first apply for a student permit to drive and then after 3 months, I am going to apply for a professional driver's license. I am thinking that it is not too late for me to learn to drive a car, because in the end I will benefit from it.
September 5, 2017, 3:56 pm
I think that the best advice that you can get is when you are actually paying attention! You need to really listen and not only hear it. The best advice I ever got was.... I-N-N... Information Not Needed... If you find yourself in a position that can actually effect you, know when to and not to speak on your own behalf. Sometimes your worst enemy is yourself.
September 5, 2017, 8:38 pm
The advice I got recently is about how satisfying it is to spend money that you earn on your own rather than using the money coming from your parents. It will be hard to live on your own and be independent with everything but it will all be worth it once you become stable financially.
September 5, 2017, 10:06 pm
The recent advice I have received was from sister, although what she was advising me about was what I already know. She was advising me not to follow bad friends as if I was a child, she decided to give me the advice because of our close relative she recently seen taking hard drugs, which came as a surprise to her.
September 6, 2017, 6:25 am
I posted about my current gaming social network/platform project on a forum and I received some advice from another member. They said that there would come a time where I thought that I would just not do anything/give up but to totally ignore that. He basically told me to never give up no matter what. And that is the most recent advice that I have received.
September 6, 2017, 2:21 pm
I received an advice from my parents to be strong and being optimistic in any of my work. Do what you want as long as you don' hurt or can not affect others. Think that god is always at our side no matter what. They will keep supporting me. I really love my parents.
September 6, 2017, 3:09 pm
The last advice I got was about drinking lemon balm tea when you are stressed out. It helps you calm down and it's a very natural way, doesn't contain any chemicals like some pills. It actually tastes good and you can buy it in many stores so I recommend it to others now,
September 7, 2017, 2:56 pm
Last week I met a lady on the street who advised me that it's not always wise to pick sides when there is a confrontation between two or more people. That's because everyone is looking out for his interests and that it is not wise enough picking someone's side without considering what your interests are . So always look out for what you gain by aligning yourself with someone or a group first.
September 8, 2017, 4:51 am
I get advise from different people and it all comes in handy at some point. But the best advise, i have received recently is that only you know what's best for you, because through the experiences you've had , you now know what you don't want. So when someone else gives you any advise, they give you the best advise for themselves, not for you.This was a light bulb moment for me. That was pretty deep!
September 8, 2017, 2:42 pm
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the
bad things don’t always spoil the good things or make them unimportant." My friend was quoting the tv series Doctor Who at the time, but that one quote has carried me thru a lot of pain and suffering. It's the little things that are most important in your life. Find a quote and make it a mantra my friend. Good luck.
September 9, 2017, 2:20 am
This is not really a recent advice that has been given to me, but something that stuck to me and I always remember whenever things get rough. "It doesn't matter how many times you fall, what matters is the number of times you stood up and fought." Ever since I was a kid, my father has been repeating these words to me, and these has really helped me through so many difficulties and failures I had undergone in life. What kep me stronger and positive is something I came by accidentally while I was trying cheer myself up because of all the fears I had in my heart. It's a passage from the bible, John 13:7 Jesus replied, "You do not understand what I do now, but someday you will.
September 9, 2017, 9:28 am
The best advice I had was from my mom. She told me to keep the faith, be strong and she'll always stay by my side until I'm living. Well, I got in a tragic accident and lost my reason of living because I was amputated. Thankfully I had my mom and her words comforted me and let me look at life in a new light.
September 9, 2017, 9:51 am
Sorry to hear about this, DanoCath. Cheer up because it's not the end of the world! This is just the start of your life so do not ever give up! I guess I do not have the perfect words to say to you but you are still lucky, compared to thousands and thousands of people because there are people who care for you and the one on top of your list is your family. Just keep the faith! Everything happens for a reason and you just have to trust yourself and God.
All the best!
September 9, 2017, 11:46 am
Thank You so much for your comforting words. That's what exactly am doing now, am trying to get back again the kind of life I had before. I believe God wouldn't be so cruel to me and give me a reason why did this happen as what you said everything happens for a reason.
September 10, 2017, 11:25 am
If you are tired, learn how to rest not to quit. This advice is very helpful and I really recommend this with people who are workaholic like me.
September 9, 2017, 1:13 pm
Advises must not just taken for granted, people giving us advises, are people are more experienced than us, it mean they already gone through with it.
i'm a very kind person, and every time there are people needed my help, I'm always ready to help them, because as a christian, I always believe they were sent to me for a purpose, to quote " Always open your door for those some one who knocks, because they are my children" I misunderstood this. result, I always end empty pocket.
But one day when I was in a seminar workshop, our speaker told us " Give a man a fish, he will eat one day; Taught a man to caught a fish, he will eat for a lifetime" It really make a lot of sense. What I'm doing is wrong, I'm just making them dependent on me, but if I will teach them how to earn, they will surely live on their own.
September 12, 2017, 9:05 am
The most recent advice I received was:
"Think big and act the same way... But never forget that everything has its right time to happen."
For very personal reasons I needed to hear that kind of advice very much and it certainly helped me a lot. Words at certain times sound like magic (especially when it comes from unexpected people).
September 13, 2017, 1:48 pm
This is so true. Things happen when they are meant to happen. You can't force things to happen your way. That seems to be never working for many people. In fact you can see that this advice seems to be applicable for the startup and the business. I have found that this is also given to the people who are chasing the career. And I am guessing this is something people have to consider for the long term view. It's kind of a wake up call for many people. And they don't seem to be getting much idea on that part.
September 16, 2017, 5:54 am
Yes, it was a very important advice
and it really makes perfect sense because it's a big mistake to rush things into our life (as much as it may seem right at that moment). An error of which we are only going to realize in the future.
September 16, 2017, 9:55 am
I have made that error and realized the issue. I don't know how to fix that now. It's kind of too late. So I am more of living a day at a time. And hoping that things would change from here onwards. I don't think that many people realize this mistake though. We just do things at a time and build on that. So I think we just have to let time work on things in due time some of the time.
September 17, 2017, 4:59 am
I totally agree with you... There really are things that only time has the "power" to solve (as if it were a simple magic trick). But it seems that it is inherent in our species that we always want to rush things that are not yet to happen.
September 17, 2017, 4:28 pm
Be and strong be good courage this is the advice I get from one of my friends. Sometimes we feel weak and discourage by our problems. But problems can't defeat us, this is what I realize. It is part of our lives. Problems help us ourselves stronger and this represent as our stepping stones in life. So just be strong and trust God always.
September 15, 2017, 9:33 pm
Been going through with a lot of pressures for the past few days that I can't get enough sleep already. Seeing how much stress I am getting, one of my friends advised me to unwind and get some fresh air away from the busy day at work. Well, she's right and I realized how much time I'm losing for myself and for my family because of devoting so much of it for my job. It's not turning my back from the obligations and responsibilities I have in the company I am working for but giving my self a time to recharge energy to become more effective in my duties.
September 18, 2017, 8:42 pm
Always good buddy! I suggest that you take couple days off and enjoy some activity to relax. Personally, I like meditation a lot and find that it always helps me to clear my mind and set things straight. Give it a try!
September 20, 2017, 12:54 pm
Hello, Pedro P! Thank you for your suggestion. My work load doesn't change at all and I really need the vacation the soonest possible.
October 2, 2017, 9:52 am
The advice that I received recently is a website takes years to mature. ANd not to give up so easy so I made a 3 year plan for my website. I am going to keep it online for 3 years and see where I go from there. Hopefully it will be busy by then, and not too busy where it's overwhelming!
October 20, 2017, 8:15 pm
