Need a word of advice but no idea who to turn to? We sometimes find ourselves in situations where we feel upset or troubled but confiding in the people around us just does not sound like a good idea. Well, although the advice on the internet should always be filtered, it does provide some help or even some comfort. So, what kind of advice does the internet offer us?
Relationships don’t only refer to two people who are married or dating. The word “relationship” includes parents, siblings and even friends. Here are a few words of advice that you may find useful:
1. Always communicate. Healthy relationships involve people who understand the beauty in not being afraid to voice their opinions. Discussions allow the other person to see your point of view while allowing you to see theirs. Through this process, the both of you will learn to be a little more understanding and it will allow the relationship to grow and to mature.
2. Be willing to apologize. There is probably nothing more poisonous than an ego that prevents you from being genuine and vulnerable with your partner or family member. It is important to remember that they are not out to hurt you; in fact, you both have the same target in mind and that is to make this relationship a peaceful and loving one. Therefore, in the event of an argument, be willing to take a step back and say “I’m sorry” when an apology is due.
3. Do not hold grudges. Bringing up the past and allowing an old mistake to fuel present anger will do no good for any relationship. Allow past mistakes to be turned into life lessons and be willing to laugh at old silly mishaps together.
Be it ways to save money, ways to settle your debt quickly or even ways to becoming a billionaire, the internet has it all. The internet teaches you to start saving at a young age to avoid going into great debt. The internet teaches you to optimize the services provided by your credit card issuers. The internet even teaches you how to obtain cash in great times of need via a bad debt consolidation loan. The information is at the tip of your fingers so use it wisely.
Study course advice
Most high school graduates find themselves unsure of which career line best suits them. They then often end up in a line of work that is not suited for their personality due to immense pressure from parents with expectations that their children have a sound plan for their lives as soon as possible. All this can be a little (VERY) overwhelming for both parents and students so here are some tips that should ease the stress!
1. List out all fields of interest and career prospects
2. Do your own research on those fields. Find out which universities offer which courses, find out course fees, living costs and employability
3. You may choose to eliminate courses that have almost zero job potential in your home country. If you hope to work abroad after graduation, find out immigration policies
4. Narrow down your choices to three items and find out greater detail such as course duration, course structure and entry requirements
5. Have a family discussion and come to a decision that everyone can agree with!
