So today I realized a few things. Some people really do value my opinion on things. Not everything obviously, but there are areas I have some expertise in and it gets noticed. It is funny how sometimes people will listen with one ear and no intention of even considering changing their original plan. To tell someone you value their opinion and ask for it then not be able to even tell you back 1/2 of what you said to start with, well, those people are only being courteous, if you can call it that. I prefer the people who just do whatever they are going to do or ask you and actually consider what you have said. I ususally 99% of the time will not give advice just to hear my own voice. I have better things to do than that, I won’t give advice if I haven’t walked somewhere in that direction to start with.
