Yeah but sometimes they give you the bad advice on purpose.

Ever say you're going to do something, and a ton of other people do everything in their power to convince you your plan is bullshit?

I've had this happen a lot, and don't let them ever rule your decisions. I've lost a lot due to these type of people, learn from my mistakes. They just want you to live a miserable life like them, and that's the only thing that makes them happy.

So have you ever had to deal with people like this? What did they do to get you to forget your plans/decisions? How did you deal with these people?


Easy

They repeat what they're saying 100 times but you repeat what YOU'RE saying 101 times

Just like not hearing any advice can get you killed. It's a gamble, and I have faith in my ability to discern.

It can be a good help learning to hear an objective critique. A critique will have all the pros and cons. This is different from someone always putting you down. Learn to tell the difference between the two.

I hate listening to anybody and I usually have everything going my way! I also have OCD, so most of them have learned not to mess with me as I can turn their life into hell!

That sounds like my mother. She basically hates every decision I make, because she's deluded herself into thinking I am incapable of making any decisions, let alone decent ones.
