Unless you are an omnipotent wizard,
you may be wrong sometimes.

You may be very intelligent, and you may even be right most of the time. But no person is right all of the time and no one is perfect, so you always have room for improvement. It is important to remember that you don’t always know best.

While it’s true that you may usually know what’s best for yourself, it is not your decision what’s best for others, except in the case of your own baby or young child. You may think you know what someone else should do with his or her life, and you may even offer advice, but in the end, you have to realize that you’re not always right.

Part of life is accepting that everyone is different, and as such, different things work for different people at different times. Every situation is not the same, and what works well for you on one day may not work for someone else on another day, no matter how similar the situations may be.

While it can be painful to watch others do something you think is a mistake, you have to allow people to live their own lives, just as you would want them to do for you. You are not all-knowing, and you are not responsible for everyone else’s lives.
