You can take the thirsty to a pond. When someone craving mineral water, how are you helping?
We are all aspirational humans. We want the best in our life. Be it with a job, our life, or a relationship. It has to be top-notch; we don’t settle for mediocre.
As a friend, don’t offer unwanted shoulders or advice. Sometimes we can help our friends by doing nothing. Let them get lost, figuring out things or two.
This thinking has come after a friend of mine got a job. He had to wait for 6-7 months, but he is happy. All our shoulders, help, referrals were of no use. Cos he had other plans. 🙂
In short, you cannot influence the want of others.
