I recently got asked in an Instagram direct message 'what's the best piece of advice you've received?' I didn't have an answer to this straight away and knew it would take a little time for me to think up an answer. I’m still not sure what the best piece of advice I’ve been given, I’m grateful to have been given quite a few but one which stood out to me has to have been from an older peer, he told me ‘change yourself before you plan on changing the world’. when put into perspective I value this piece of advice above all others. And I try my best to act upon it as well as I can.
Side note: one thing to consider before giving out a piece of advice is that make sure you practice what you preach before it leaves your tongue.
