Tell Us: Which Advice Wasn't Meant for You?

Denise
I love the series of television commercials for a financial services company in which a financial planner meets with customers who complain about advice they received which didn't help them.

The financial planner explains, "That advice wasn't meant for you." Meaning, the customer received advice that didn't fit their situation or circumstance or goals.

I think that explains what often happens during caregiving. We receive advice which isn't appropriate or realistic or logical. It's not meant for us.

I'd love to hear about the advice you've received which wasn't meant for you. In our comment section, below, share what advice you received and how you knew it wasn't meant for you.
