Is it good to impart Free Advice?

The literal meaning of Advice is “guidance or recommendations offered with regard to prudent action“.  Every being, be it a baby, adult or an old person, everyone needs guidance to move ahead in life. Life is not a bed of roses, it is mix of joys and sorrows which keep the spirit of your existence alive. When in joy, you don’t need any support or advice while you dread one badly when in pain. Isn’t it?

Now the question arises,whom do we seek advice from? Obviously from our near and dear ones. They may be our relatives, friends, neighbors, anyone with whom we love to share our thoughts and seek right path to cross over. At times, these advice are sought for, while sometimes they are given to you for free. Everybody loves to get things which are “FREE“.  But is the case same when it comes to advise somebody for future actions? Do people love what we say to them? Are they actually going to follow your perspective and act upon it? We never think these aspects, before reacting and a free advice flow out of our mouth. Is it a correct way to impart advice? Should we actually give free advice?

I too have never thought on these aspects of “Free Advice” till one day when one of my good friend, has warned me ” Not to give free advice to anyone, until and unless asked for“. We had an argument on this, and I gave up pondering over the fact that ” Things which people get FREE, actually don’t hold importance“. This#SachchiAdvice has really impacted me from within.

It’s rightly said:

Free advice

Am sure you too will agree with me on this. What say?#

My journey to start a blog was just an attempt done to overcome my fear “I cannot write“. But the appreciation and love which I received from my friends out here made me believe that anyone can write. I have learnt one thing that if you ever feel of doing something, attempt it first before failing, don’t sit back and think that you will never succeed doing it :).

I undertook a Blogging 101 course where I wrote a post on “Who am I and Why am here“. This course has helped me know about the blogging world and how I can enjoy being part of it.

I would like to tell people who are new to blogging:

  • Be yourself while writing post.
  • Explore and connect with people of your interest/passions.
  • Share and appreciate efforts of other bloggers.
  • Participate in Daily post prompt (an initiative of WP) which keeps your mind tingling and ideas flowing.
  • Opt for Blogging U. course as I feel its a must do for every blogger who is new to this blogging world.
