Practice what you preach 

I was always the type of person that my friends would run to about there problems. I never pryed into there business but for some reason they liked to vent to me. 

I guess it’s because I know how to stay calm in chaos or I was just a good listener who knows. When they would come to me I would try to give them the best advice I could think of. 

To my surprise I was really good at giving out advice but my problem was I wasn’t good at taking my own advice. It’s easier to tell someone else to do something than it is for you to actually do it.  I was a hypocrite and I had to stop doing that. 

Now I make sure to only give advice that I know I’ve done in the past. I’m practicing what I preach and it makes me more confident when someone asks for my opinion. 

If I feel like I can’t give the right advice because I’ve never been in that situation I say that. People like honesty rather than you tell them a bullshit story and then they take your advice and fail. 

Are you someone that practices what you preach? Let me know in the comments.

  1. I definitely try my best to. My blog is all about relationship advice, most of it I learned from past experiences. I try to always act upon what I preach – but sometimes it can be difficult and it’s sometimes easier to give advice! But my blogs actually help me at times, if I find myself stuck in a situation and not doing what I know I should be, I read my own advice. 🙂

    1. Sometimes it hard to practice what you preach because you are too close to the situation to see it. I often see the need with others but often need to remind myself. I think its normal human behavior. I know I need to take my own advice.

  2. I don’t believe I ever really did much of preaching. But my thinking towards the rights and wrongs of peoples behaviour, i never implemented myself. I didn’t even THINK to do so, somehow justifying before getting to the point of, ‘ maybe i should stop this way’. Now I am finally activaly following those engrained morals and it makes me feel way more wholesome and pure as a person!
