When someone doesn’t trust you to make decisions in your own life.
Manage episode 344670965 series 2976414
What do you do ?
There have been times in my life when I followed what other people told me to do, even though I knew that it wasn’t necessarily right for me. I didn’t trust myself enough, so I trusted them instead. And that was a mistake.
At the same time, it’s not wise to outright disregard someone who gives you helpful feedback, especially if they’re more experienced.
How do you know when someone is offering useful advice or just trying to control the decisions you make about your own life?
And how do you best communicate that you’re done receiving feedback and have made up your mind?
I put this question to my Quick Hits panel: On Point Partners CEO Gary Fredericks; dementia prevention coach Alexi Bracey; and Jacque Zoccoli of Network Builders of Arizona.
How have you managed people trying to run your life?
