I don’t need your advice because I will learn lessons myself.

I don’t need your advice because there is no one-size-fits-all master plan for life.

I don’t need your advice because I want to make my own experiences, want to make my own mistakes.


10. Pretending I don’t need to listen to the advice of others

I don’t need your advice because I don’t care about it. I can’t care. I want to, but I can never care about your experiences as much as I care about mine. Your lessons can’t teach me.

Even though I know it’s selfish, at the end of the day your experiences will never be able to shape me the way my own do.

It’s the experiences I make that define me.

I’m sorry I’m not letting you teach me. But I am still trying my best to listen to you.
