Aw that's actually a really nice story. And it's really good advice! That's one that really made me say "awwwww!" Lol. The best advice I've ever been given was from my mother. It's not only for relationships, mostly just goes for anything, but I've made sure to remember it in every relationship romantically, friendly ones and fam. She said: Never leave anything unsaid. You're far less likely to regret saying something from your heart than you are to regret never saying something from your heart. Does that make sense? Not sure if I worded it right, but that's something close to it. Lol. I always make sure to tell my family and partner and loved ones that I love them and care and never leave my thoughts unsaid because I would regret not telling them how much I care. A lot of the things sound too mushy and I might feel stupid, but I'd rather feel stupid and let my family, kids, loved ones know how I feel than to never get the chance only because I was afraid of looking dumb.
The other best advice was how my mom always and still does, tell me I am a strong woman and will not ever NEED someone to make my life and dreams come true. I WANT them in my life, but I am strong enough to make it if I have to without them. I come from a line of extremely strong women.
My dad gives good advice every time I'm around him! His last advice was pretty good. I had talked about never wanting to get past age 21 and he freaked! "Take it back, please take it back now!" Lol. He says "be careful what you say. Your words are the most powerful thing." He means that mostly in the spiritual way and like by saying negative things you can kind of open up for them to happen. It's true though. If you always say "I'll never get a good job, husband, life, etc." You won't. I guess I have a lot of good advices from loved ones.
