Who are the best people to turn to for advice

The best people to turn to for advice are those people you know are experienced with life and has been through similar. Perhaps, you just found out that your girlfriend has cheated on you; and you haven't the slightest clue on what to do or how to handle this situation. Going to a friend that has had this happen and who has handled his situation with it turning out for the best, is the person to ask advice from.

If you have a health issue and you are confused on how to take care of it or you don't know what the problem is, the best person to turn to for advice as well as medical treatment is your doctor. It is not always a good idea to diagnose yourself by listen to the advice of someone else who is not a doctor who thinks you might have a dreadful diseases.

Good friends want to be there for us and guide us in the right direction. However, they don't always know what is best for you. In some situations paying close attention to your own instincts is better than getting advice from a friend who isn't sure if the advice that they are giving you.

In most cases your parents are probably the ones to run to when you need some advice. Most parents are wise and have a bond with their children and they devote themselves to being there for their children. Nevertheless, there are times when a parents advice might not be good enough.

Each situation is different, not everyone has the same opinions or views on how one should live their lives and that is when we must use our own judgement on what advice we get from our friends and loved ones. If they are not professionally trained therapist or any other kind of professional that could suit your needs, you could end up getting the wrong kinds of information.

If you attend a church, getting advice from your minister can also steer you in the right direction; they take a more spiritual direction when giving you advice, and that might be the very thing you are looking for. Life throws us so many obstacles and there are many issues that we will need help with, that is why it is good to have people in our lives that care about us and will offer us advice when we need it. Try being that person that someone in need of advice can turn to; just don't be judgemental or insensitive, if they choose to not take you advice.
