Hey Auncle, You Might Be Right, Except that You’re Not.

Can all know-it-all stand up? I plead guilty of it.

As a childless auncle with a growth mindset is challenging to be a mere observer to different behaviours, particularly the one of the loved ones. We only have control over our own being so it might be about time to tell you and remind myself to back off.

With so many ideals projected on the lives of generations to come, we fail to see our place in the grand scheme of things. Our role is not that of judge and jury, but to live the best life we can with all the tools, knowledge and skills that we are determined to acquire.

The level of determination varies from person to person and so is the perception of the world. So no, we can’t go around correcting people in matters of life. Not unless they want your input. The irony of free advice is that it can costs relationships.
