Do not play fast and loose with the advice you give. You just might make someone radically alter the course of their life.


At times, it can feel like epiphanies don’t actually exist in real life. It’s as if they only really take hold and produce real change in TV shows and Hollywood movies.

Usually, a sudden moment of clarity remains exactly that: momentary. It comes, excites, and passes by, leaving you pretty much the same as you always were.

But apparently some bits of clarity do have a permanent, life-altering impact. At least, according to self-reporting folks on the internet they do.

Reddit user weathertimes asked, "What is one piece of advice that has changed you?"

Selective Listening

“Don't believe everything you think.”

Elkhoundman

Humble, but Firm

"You gotta know the differences between someone giving you constructive criticism, and someone just trying to hurt you."

"If you don't, then you will either think everything said to you is something you need to change, or think everyone is out to get you."

Zachfulger

Remember YOU

"You don't have to set yourself on fire to keep everyone else warm."

FDR, With Some Depression-Era Thinking

"Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are."

And the possibilities of where to travel are endless.

Be it a soothing beach vacation in Turks and Caicos, enjoying the romantic hustle and bustle of Paris, or letting one's imagination run wild at an amusement park.

But are there some places one should make a point of avoiding as a vacation destination?

Be it for political unrest, unsafe conditions, or simply because there isn't much to do.
