So I’m sure at some point someone has asked for you for help with a situation they needed help with and you probably gave them some damn good advice. Such good advice that you gave yourself a nice pat on the back.
So why 2 months later, when you were presented with the same exact situation did you not remember this wonderful advice that you had given. I know why. Because this is “different” this situation is “unique”, it’s ” complicated”. Shut up, no it’s not. Take your own advice and stop being afraid to do what you know you have to do.
