I'll be the first to tell you I don't take advice well. Especially unsolicited advice, but sometimes I also willfully ignore solicited advice, on account that I *clearly* know everything and am a grown up and don't need to be told that which I already know (or think I know).
But know what?
Sometimes they're right (they being the advice givers, who are usually somebody's parents). Sometimes they walk in and say- did you think about this, and what about that, and have you considered xyz.
