Dealing with Unwanted Advice:
“If I needed your advice, I’d ask for it!”

"Pleiades" by Mimi Stuart
Live the Life you Desire

So what I really meant was…

“I appreciate your wanting to help, but… right now I have a strategy,”

Or “…what I need right now is some time to reflect,”

Or “…now is not a good time.”

It takes a great man to give sound advice tactfully, but a greater to accept it graciously.”

~Macaulay, J. C.
