Who's advice do you take before taking a decision in your life?

I am sure that life cannot be spent alone. Atleast I cannot. Some people are close to your heart than others. Some people who are close and wise are always given more importance by you in your life. They could be your Parents/Wife/Children etc. etc. There will be a person without whom you donot take a decision in your life. Who is the one you feel; without his advice i cannot take any step further because you know his advice will help you more than your own thinking. Sometime the persons advice doesnt matter to you at all because he/she is so close to your heart you want to hear what he/she think about you and the stuffs that you are going to do in the time ahead. Who is the person whose advice you take before taking a decision in your self? Or is that you follow your own heart with out anyone's advice!

When i am making decision, like what you have written, its good for us to talk it over with someone close to our hearts whether it be our parents/friends or our special someone. As for me, it usually depends on what decision i am making, just like when it comes to education and some personal stuff i usually talk to my parents. But as to my love life, often i talk to a friend. Its actually more easy for me to talk to someone about any decision i make so that i can balance both the negative and postive of it. There are decisions that parents should know because they have been there and done that so they have more wisdom and opinions compared to our friends. but right now, that i am more older and mature and have special someone, often i do talk to him about any decision i have and im happy because hes supportive. But as to my final decision, its still me that decides, i do follow both my heart and insticts.

After considering pros and cons of the situation, I take decision myself because if you go on consulting friends, relatives and other people, different people gives different advices which will finally land you in taking wrong decision and this will also give a chance to others to blame a particular person on whose advise you had to take final decision. As far as I am concerned, self decision is always the best and in many cases I have been successful in my decisions.

I always go to my husband before making any serious decisions; not only because he is my life partner, but also because he is very wise. Often times he sees things that I don't. He understands where I am coming from, and he rationalizes with me, to see where he is coming from. He is very calm and we are able to discuss issues in a very effective way. I don't know what I'd do without his advice. He is wonderful. I also sometimes seek advice from my 24 year old daughter. She has often advised me and guided me in the right path. She has a glorious heart.
