Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.
There are many times when people purposefully avoid the advice of friends and family because, honestly, the advice wouldn’t be what they wanted to hear. When you’re young you can fall into the trap of thinking you know at all, that all too destructive pride. Luckily, as we grow older, we realize that doing the right thing takes careful consideration, prayer, and the advice of others you trust. Don’t let pride get in the way, help can simply be a phone call (or a prayer) away.
