Why are we so jittery to be in the driver’s seat as far driving our own lives is concerned?? I’ve observed this quite often when it comes to doling out advice to a friend, playing agony aunt to someone most of us do a darned good job of it and end up handing out the most sensible advice possible.. But when it comes to taking charge of our own lives, we feel helpless and end up looking at others to hold the mirror to us and give us an opinion. Why don’t we empower ourselves to take charge of our lives, steer it in the direction we so wish to ?? Is it because we lack the objectivity to see things as they are when it comes to ourselves ? Or is it simply because we lack the insight to practice what we preach with aplomb ? I have seen people who can’t handle their own relationships sometimes give the most profound and practical relationship advice !!
I am trying to figure out why this happens? As always,any help would be welcome
