Consideration

We often have certain weaknesses that cause us to be influenced by others. When we suffer the consequences of those influences, we often create alibis to explain why things have gone wrong. Our close friends and relatives may often use their strong influence on us. This influence is sometimes used in order to make our decisions align with their intentions and desires.

You may often have difficulty recognising that the advice given may not be to your benefit. Being too lazy to think for yourself, could cause you to happily accept advice with assumptions that they are sound.  Sometimes you might be afraid to challenge someone’s advice because you fear them or worry about hurting their feelings. Yes, it is strange that someone you love and who loves you in return, could also be someone you fear.
