+67People learn things/lessons once they are ready to learn them. Not when you want them to; not when YOU feel they have to. Hence "advice" is seldom well received. So offer it, and if it doesn't work it's just not the right time. We often have to experience something to really learn from it. Amirite?
-15Before we're born, our parents have NO IDEA what we're gonna be like, what our likes/dislikes will be, how we will look, etc. Yet they get to pick our names. I think that every person should pick their own, "official" name at the age of 18. Maybe they can leave what their parents named them as their middle name. Just a thought.
